On Friday, January 11, 2019, OCSA teachers performed in the first annual Teacher Talent Show fundraiser. The Class of 2021 hosted the talent show to raise money for next year’s Junior/Senior prom.

The show opened with Social Studies teacher Mrs. Pageau playing the piano and singing, followed by a series of vocal performances, a TED Talk, a comedic monologue, and a final show-stopping group dance. The fundraiser, created by the students, for the students, managed to raise nearly $600.

According to Mrs. Vicens, Sophomore class representative, the production was a product of students’ goal of hosting a great prom. She stated that it was the “idea of making everything possible to make our kid’s dreams come true” that enticed 9 teachers to perform.

Ms. Taylor, who delivered a well-received TED Talk, stated that while she never expected to take part in a show like this, “everyone should give it a shot.” In all, the show was a huge success, and planning for next year’s performances has already begun.
