First-grader Cameron Neis (below, left) tells jokes during the dress rehearsal of the School Talent Show at Kaneland McDole Elementary School. The rehearsal took place on Saturday. The show will be held on Friday in the main gym. Directed by Melissa Becker, it will include about 40 acts.
Above right, the first through fifth grade talent waits to get on stage during the dress rehearsal. Fourth-grader Brendan Neis (right) sings “Me And My Shadow.” It is the third year for the talent show, and proceeds will be donated to the McDole Reading Lounge (through the student council). The lounge is a place where kids can come before and after school and read in a comfortable environment.
