Kids' Korner Talent Show 2013

Hundreds of family members and friends came out to the auditorium of Woodrow Wilson Middle School on Thursday night to support their favorite Kids' Korner site. They were treated to an awesome show from all our after school sites. There was so much dancing, singing and really cool skits that we didn't want the night to end! Here's just a little taste of some of the talent that was on display last night.

This kid can DANCE!!!

The children and staff have been working  hard for months to create and practice these skits and routines. We are so proud of their hard work and believe we have the most talented kids in the world in our programs! Congratulations to everyone who participated last night and thank you to the families and friends who came out to support the children. A special thanks to Josh for being our emcee for the night!
