RMS Rattlesnakes Have Talent!

By  Lauren H.


The annual RMS Talent Show was held on February 19th. This year did not disappoint. Full of wonderful acts, it was a joy to watch and a pleasure to witness.

Two school assemblies were held the following day in order for the students to see their peers. For both assemblies, it started off with Richardson’s very own Jazz Band, with a combination of Sixth, Seventh and Eighth Graders playing upbeat music that got our feet to tapping.

During the Sixth Grade Assembly, Peyton T. sang “Fairytale Ending” while playing the guitar. Jocelyn H., played “Reverie” on the piano. Alice L. played “Cello Suite No. 1: Prelude”. Sarah A. danced to “Ballet Bells”, Noor A. tapped dance to “Hello”, and finally Vandessa A., Kristin K., Anna L., and Sydney M. sang “It’s Time”.

During the Seventh/Eighth Grade show, after the Jazz Band, the show continued with Seventh Grader Caroline M. singing the Jackson 5 song “I want you Back”, Seventh Grader Gordon T. played Mozart on the piano, Eighth Grader Alex D. sang “Gypsy” by Shakira, Eighth Graders Steven L. and Justin C. doing an instrumental duet. Justin played the cello, Steven played the piano.

The next act was Eighth Grader Rachel Chung singing followed by Eighth Grader Jared K. playing the instrumental version of ” A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri.

To close the show, one of our own Richardson staff members, Math Teacher Mr. Michael Fuji played guitar with his own unique medley of three songs… “Stand By Me” by Ben E. King, “What Makes You Beautiful” by One Direction, and “Perfect” by Pink. Fuji was very entertaining by making jokes throughout his performance.

Due to illness, Erin P. and Trajan M. couldn’t perform. They would have performed their infamous comedy act that they have been doing it ever since the early years at Riviera Elementary School and at the Talent Show the night before, but they had to drop out at the last minute, unfortunately.

This show was made possible by Technology Teacher and Sound Systems Manager Mr. Joe Petito, Mrs. Pam Milroy and Mrs. Andrea Rouf.   Thank you to them for volunteering to organize the students, holding auditions and practices for this show. It was a huge success!  RMS Rattlesnakes, you have talent!  Thanks for sharing it with us!
