Campion’s staff members displayed their talents to the students in various ways and presentations, with the intent of closing off the semester in a lighthearted way this past Saturday night.
Marc Winokan, freshman, commented, “Staff Talent Show was really fun. I enjoyed all the acts but my favorite was Ms. Johnson and Portia’s singing. Overall, it was a very fun night.”
Erin Johnson and Portia Kluchesky kicked off the program by singing classic Disney princess songs while dressed up and acting their parts.
Relatable to many of Campion’s students, a World History class was recreated by staff members as students and Cindy Santana as the teacher. The typical behavior of students being acted out by staff members was the reason for many laughs.
Already a part of past Staff Talent Shows, the well-known Helmdini, a.k.a. Dean Helm, made an appearance with his tricks that were highly anticipated by the audience. Some students were called to the front and had the chance to participate in magic tricks.
In a bilingual activity, Jillian Harlow prepared a contest in which the competitors, mostly not fluent speakers, had to read sentences at random in Spanish. Staff members and students participated in it and the audience got to vote for the best pronunciation.
Between presentations, April Riseley recreated TikTok trend videos featuring staff members. Rodolfo Segawa, sophomore, mentioned, “I found the idea of doing the TikTok trends really creative. It was something unexpected, and it was really funny.”
The last activity was prepared by the Campion Church pastors with a holiday theme. Pastor Taylor and Pastor Goetz were decorated as Christmas trees by two different groups of audience members while Pastor Bizama presented the activity.
Throughout the night, students had a chance to see the staff members in a different light. Freshman Izuchi Nwankwo, remarked, “Seeing the teachers not in teacher-mode was really funny and seeing the staff as the ones participating in the program instead of outside guests was nice.”
