From vocal stylings, dance performances, and jam sessions to a though-provoking video on climate change, students shared their hearts and passions. Inspiration was drawn from a range of artists too, including Metallica, Led Zepplin, Aaliyah, Eminem, Shawn Mendes, and Lil Tecca and more.
Acts of Self-Expression and Triumphs of Personal Growth
And what makes the event so heartwarming is the unofficial theme of acceptance and support. Students and staff were at the ready with cheers and high fives. Sparkly pom-poms and spoken affirmations permeated the event. With each performance, students conquered anxieties. They applied coping skills. They chose to share a piece of themselves with trust in a safe, supportive environment.
We couldn’t be more proud of our students. Congratulations!
