Virtual Talent Show

Upper Sumas’ Got Talent!

We’re not letting COVID stop us from shining bright…Get ready for our VIRTUAL TALENT SHOW coming the week of June 7th. The year-end talent show is a highlight at Upper Sumas. As we cannot audition, practice & perform like we have done in the past, we are going to try a new format this year with two different options. Both will result in a talent show video that will be shared with the school community.

*Participation in the Virtual Talent Show is optional, at child & parent’s discretion.

Option 1: At Home

  • Identify a special talent & practice at home. Record your talent performance and send the video file to uppersumas [at] (subject: Talent%20Show%20Submission) by the deadline of Friday, June 4th. This is a great option for talents involving sports/athletics or musical instruments.

Option 2: At School

  • Identify a special talent that you can practice at school. Rehearsal time will be provided over several lunch hours and students will be kept within their learning groups. Staff will record the talent performance at school the week of May 31st-June 4th. This is a great option for talents easily performed at school, such as singing, dancing and comedy routines.


Monday, May 3rd:

  • Talent Show participation permission forms sent home

May 4th-28th:

  • Practice talent at home OR
  • Practice sessions held at school

  • Performance must be kept under 3 minutes

And For at-home performances:
