Mayatan Students and Teacher Show Their Talents
As of last week, Mayatan hadn’t hosted a Talent Show in seven years. So while our teachers knew that Mayatan students were talented academically, they weren’t aware of their gifts outside the classroom. So when the Mayatan Ambassadors hosted a school-wide Talent Show on April 4, our teachers were surprised by the wide range of talents on display.
Mayatan students aged 4 to 18 participated; some braved the stage solo, while others performed in groups. Most students showed off their musical talents: singing, dancing, and playing guitar, keyboard, recorder, and violin. In addition, members of our Kindergarten class demonstrated their Hula Hoop skills, and 3rd grader Jonathan Dubon performed card tricks. Students were likewise impressed that their teachers had hidden talents, too – in particular, Ms. Brittani and Ms. Kristen stunned the crowd with a beautiful duet.
The Talent Show was held in our new auditorium, and was organized by our newest student club, the Mayatan Ambassadors, a group of high-achieving high school students who actively serve our community. So far, Mayatan Ambassadors have served as translators on medical brigades, shared meals with visitors to the school, and arranged a “Pi Day” celebration on March 14th. They’re currently working to produce a Mayatan yearbook; if they’re successful, it will mark the first time the school has had a yearbook in over 10 years!
We’re proud of our students and teachers who participated, and of the Mayatan Ambassadors who worked hard to put on the event. We’re already looking forward to next year’s show!
