The PrimeTime students and staff at Logan had such a great experience last year with the Fashion and Talent show that they decided to do it again to close out the 2009-10 school year. The end of the year event showcased fashions that included street and formal wear. After students walked the runway they spiced things up by sharing some of their talents. The performances went from dancing and singing to students making music drumming on garbage cans and playing violins.
This was the 2nd annual Kids Choice Award Show and as it got underway the event started with a slide show from all the activities Ms. Tasha and the rest of the YMCA PrimeTime Staff had done during the year.

The students received awards for Best Helper, Most Talkative and everything in between. During the awards the Students put on a wonderful display of talent, from singing and dancing to Karate and board breaking!
The students at McKinley Elementary invited friends and family to watch this year’s end of school event, a Variety show that included singing and dancing. The students’ hard work with help from Alex, the site leader, and the rest of the PrimeTime YMCA staff paid off as they presented a magnificent show for all in attendance.
The PrimeTime students and staff enjoyed their First Annual Variety Show that had all the trappings of an old time Vaudeville Show, from Disco to Drama, including duets singing and dancing. The night would not be complete without an after party; therefore, during intermission the performers took a quick break from the stage and had snack with their parents. A thank you goes out to all that made this a great success including the parent who brought all the music and lighting equipment.
San Diego Zoo came to Nye to help educate the children about the ecology and how they would impact the habitats of some animals. Ms. Tristian and Dr. DoLittle empowered students to join forces in creating powerful ECO-HEROS. These Eco- Heroes were given the opportunity to have hands on experience with animals like Rio (a Double Yellow Headed Amazon) and Armondo Santiago (a Three Banded Armadillo). In this encounter the students where EMPOWERED thru information and education on how to have a positive impact and save the environment.
