Show your talent and creativity!


Open Mic is every 2nd Tuesday of the month


after school in the Art Gallery




This is an opportunity for students and staff to share their talents with the community. If you sing, dance, recite poetry, juggle, or have any other talent, we'd love to have


you perform.


You can also just come and be a member of the audience.


You may be inspired to get up in front of your peers and show your stuff!
