Leal Middle School students and teachers showed off their amazing talents during the school’s second annual talent show on May 29.

Students, teachers and parents gathered at the school’s gym to watch the students shine as they took the stage. There were a total of 10 acts, ranging from singing and dancing to playing an instrument. The students also enjoyed special performances by the school’s Mariachi group and Leal MS Teachers Michael Johnson and Ruben Galvan.

The audience jumped to their feet, swayed, sang along and applauded for each of the performers.

In the end, the judges deliberated and voted for one winner: sixth grade student Richard Myers. He performed “Attention” by Charlie Puth.

“I’m very happy! I practiced singing and playing the guitar for four weeks to prepare,” he said. “I’m proud of myself for trying my best.”

Richard was congratulated by the judges as he received a trophy and a $25 Visa gift card.

The talent show, which was organized by student organization IMPACT, also served as a fundraiser to collect pet food for the nonprofit organization Daisy Cares.

Students who brought pet food received $2 off their talent show ticket.

“Daisy Cares presented to us in January and shared with us a lot of facts about stray animals in San Antonio and the things that they need, so the students decided they wanted to do something to help,” LMS Teacher Olivia Robinson said. “Our goal is to collect enough food to make an IMPACT within their organization.”

The school was able to collect 100 pounds of pet food.

Way to go, Apaches!
