Grade 6 Variety Show

I thought the variety show was very funny and I enjoyed the performances. There was a lot of dancing and some cool pogo jumping. I really liked the solo that one girl did. I thought hockey was very funny. I liked the end where everybody did the dance from High School Musical. I think it was really cool.

There were a lot of games and many raffles. There were also some stores where you could buy jewelry, clothes, and snacks. I got to hang out with my friends and went to the playground. The carnival was super fun.
