The fifth grade classes at Weston Intermediate School enjoyed a very energetic and entertaining performance of Brain Challenge, a mix of game show Jeopardy-type questions along with math, spelling and physical challenges, on Monday morning, March 26.
The event, part of the PTO’s Talent on Tap program, was a great success, and has been a favorite Talent on Tap performance for the past three years.
On Friday, March 30, the entire fourth grade gathered in the cafetorium for Poetry in Motion, performed by David Zucker. The artist brings poetic literature to life in his performance, using his skills as an actor, director, playwright, teacher and mime to engage the children. He is also a returning performer, entertaining many WIS classes in recent years.
Coming this month as part of Talent on Tap is a special treat for the entire school. Doktor Kaboom, a creation of actor/comedian David Epley, demonstrates that foundations of scientific discovery are fun and useful tools for a lifetime. Through highly interactive comic performances, he encourages students to express their awe of scientific demonstrations, to creatively explore the world around them, and to realize that science and mathematics are meant to be fun.
Doktor Kaboom will perform two shows for intermediate school students this week in the Weston High School auditorium (a field trip!)
The general public will have an opportunity to see his performance on Friday, April 27, at the Ridgefield Playhouse, where he performs every other year.
