Talent Show

  1. Set a Date with the executive Committee of the PTO for March. This date is usually set prior to the new school year. Event usually runs 6:00-8:30
  2. Contact Wegman’s or GIANT 45 days in advance to see if they are willing to donate cake for the mini reception that follows the event.
  3. Be sure to reserve the All Purpose room with the school’s secretary as soon as the date is set – there is a “Building Use” form on our PTO website. It can be printed and filled out. – You will need to have chairs set up and also need the sound system set up.
  4. Send an email flyer, through room parents (after approval by principal), to get “Acts” for the fair – (samples are in the folder) by March 1st or earlier. This should include the date of the Talent Show, the student’s name, grade/teacher, the student’s talent and the time limit. (Acts should be limited to 3 minutes). Always check the PTO box to look for participant forms. We welcome all students, even if it's the night of the Show, their names just won't be in the Program. We also give Participation Certificates for this event. Include staff/teachers in this event. Showcase ALL of EP’s Talent!
  5. The day before the Talent Show, make a program of the participants. They can be printed at The UPS store and charged to EP’s account.
  6. All Grades are welcome to participate, there are no rehearsals. Students just arrive by 5:30pm the night of the show. The show typically last a little over 1hr.
  7. Solicit a couple of volunteers to help, especially on the night of the event (cake pickup/set up, sound system, MC, programs, etc.)
  8. Advertise Talent Show in the January & February Newsletter to get the word out early. Send “newsletter blurb” to the VP of the PTO so it can be approved and entered into the Newsletter
  9. Contact the coordinator of the Eagle News – Easterly Parkway’s News center run by the 5th grade students.
  10. Generate a room parent email to be distributed in order to advertise coming to the Talent Show – This should be done 1 month prior to event & sent to PTO president to be approved by principal for distribution
