The Friends of Humanities Academy at Walter Reed Middle School had a full capacity crowd for their annual Reed's Got Talent fundraiser and art gallery show.
"This is a fundraiser for the Friends of Humanities Academy so that we can provide extra field trips and bring in guest speakers to enhance education," said Cindy Abrams, co-president of the Friends of Humanities with Mark Johnston.
About 48 students performed everything from hula hoop dancing to magic. There was a flautist, a few gymasts and a lecture about gun control. Another 40 students showed their artwork, and two dozen others helped with the lighting, set design and stage crew.
Band director Steven McDonough sang "Danny's Song" and the teachers did a Gangnam Style tribute that brought down the house.
Food trucks donated part of their proceeds to the Humanities program. There was a red carpet and photography at the entrance. Inside was lined with artwork from both students and teachers and some of it was for sale.
PTSA President Carol Convey said, "This is always a very fun event for the year, and it's a great success."
