Crescent 2015 Annual Talent Show By Wyatt McNeece
On Friday April 3rd, 2015 the Crescent Talent show was held in the cafeteria. There were many performances and we had an absolutely huge turnout that no one expected. Yearbook class students would like to just take a second to thank everyone who came and we hoped you enjoyed the food and the show. We started out the night with a spaghetti dinner and a mixture of water and soda pop. After we had all had our fil, we were ready for the entertainment and the performances began. We would like to thank our emcee, Terry Kahler who told funny jokes and kept everyone entertained during the time it took us to get all the acts ready.
For the first round of the Talent show, we had Chloe Adams and Elly Charon hula hooping to the song Firework; Haley-Faith and Kathy Grooms singing Something Bad; Allison Locke performing a variety show; Ethan Saari popping to the song Printer Jam; and then came Taneisha Kazlauskas playing the beautiful piano for us. We then took as short break for the silent dessert auction and helped ourselves to some delicious sweets. Special thanks go out to James Bigbie and Lynda Schroeder for making and donating the delicious pies and tarts for the dessert auction. After intermission, we came back with Jasmine O’Neel and Acacia Bergstrom signing to the song Happy; then Cassie Mitchell sang Little Bunny Foo Foo; and then we finally had our show stopping Draevun Buchanan lip synching and dancing to Kiss’ song Rockin’ Roll All Night. Draevun’s act will surely be remembered for a long time to come!
Once Draevun left the stage, Terry Kahler entertained the audience while the Yearbook class assembled for the final number, The Battle of the Sexes. The girls went first and did a dance routine to the song Call Me Maybe. The audience was clapping and singing along and really rooting for the girls. Once the girls were done, the boys took the stage with all their macho manliness. Their song skipped and began playing the girls’ song, but that posed no problem for the boys as they tore off their gym pants and began doing the girls routine in their cut-off shorts. It was an all-out battle of the sexes, but the boys definitely won the battle as the crowd went wild clapping and laughing along with the boys as they finished their number. The event ended with Ms. Schroeder, the yearbook advisor, thanking the community of Joyce for coming out and supporting our brave students who wanted to let their talent shine and for supporting the yearbook with their admission and participation with the dessert auction.
I do not know about you, but I am looking forward to it next year. Hope to see you there!
HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS ENJOYED THE TACOMA MUSEUM OF GLASS By Neil Peppard
The Crescent High School went to the Museum of Glass on Friday the 26th. The field trip was organized very well. We started off the day by watching a live show of glass molding in the hot shop. Their team was building 70 pound goblets. The team gave us detailed descriptions and answered all of our questions.
We then went to the art gallery and saw the museum’s best work ranging from professionals to high school glass artist. Cari Belford said, “It was very inspirational knowing kids our age were making glass art.”
Our knowledge was widely broadened and we were quite amazed to see the breathtaking art at the Tacoma Museum of Glass.
LUCK O’ THE IRISH AND THE WEE LITTLE LEPRECHAUN THAT VISITED OUR KINDERS
We all know that leprechauns can be crafty and mischievous when it comes to their pot of gold. What we did not know is that on St. Patrick’s Day they love to be little pranksters…but Miss Serianne’s kinders sure learned that as a Leprechaun snuck into her room while the kinders were out playing and left a mess! When they returned, they found little green footprints and handprints all over the room! Apparently, the leprechaun was watching Miss Serianne’s class when he realized he really had to go potty, so he waited until the room was empty and snuck in. He left a note on the mirror: “Hi kindergartners, I couldn’t hold it any longer so I snuck in here. Bet you can’t find me ..the Leprechaun.” Well this caused quite a stir amongst the kinders and they began to speculate who could have let the leprechaun in because the door is always locked. After much discussion the kinders decided to get Dr. Mork involved in their investigation. Dr. Mork sprang into action and began questioning some of the “little” students dressed in green. He brought Draevun Buchanan into the classroom and the kids deduced it could not have been him because his feet were too big and did not match the footprints. Others were questioned, but none matched the evidence left at the scene of the mess. More discussions occurred and Miss Serianne and the kinders began looking for the leprechaun. They went to the playground and began to search. They huddled around Miss Serianne and claimed they couldn’t find him, she asked “did you search everywhere?” They said they did and she asked, “even the tires?” The kinders said “No, we forgot to check the tires!” So the raced to the tires and began their search again. Lo’ and behold, the tricky little leprechaun was not there but the kinders found his pot of gold – a stash of green cookies – with a little note: “HA! HA! HA! You couldn't find me! But I left you a treat! Thanks for letting me use the potty! Better luck next year! ~Leprechaun.” The students returned to the classroom to feast on their treats and they continued talking about the leprechauns visit. The one thing that puzzled them the most was “How did he get into the room?” After a lot of talking, they ultimately decided that the person who aided the leprechaun was our very own Randy Rooney because he has the keys to unlock to door!
Special thanks to Miss Serianne, Cara Ottele, and Dr. Mork for making St. Patty’s Day a day our kinders will always remember!

Classified Appreciation Week Ends with a Bang!
All week long the teachers, administration, and School Board have been showing their gratitude to the Classified Staff of Crescent by providing all kinds of goodies for breakfast and lunch. This year, students decided to get in on the “thanks” and the ASB, Leadership and Yearbook classes worked on personalized thank you messages for each Classified Staff member. In secret, the polled students for their favorite memory or statement that best described a particular staff member. At a morning assembly, the students presented their gifts while all the students cheered for each and every staff member. Thank you for all you do. You are all so amazing and we are so thankful you are at Crescent.
