NIVA’s Got Talent Elementary Division 2020

Selected students from the elementary department showed off their talents in NIVA's Got Talent 2020

This year, because of the COVID-19 situation, the elementary students had a virtual talent show at the Heisler Hall here at School. Only the performers were in the hall and the performances are posted here online for their classes and parents to see. In the past, NIVA"s Got Talent was a part of NIVA's tradition to identify students with amazing talents. Some of our students in the past who have joined the NIVA's Got Talent went on to take it on a professional level as singers and performers. This year we saw a lot of great talent and we always want to encourage our students to continue to strive for excellence. Here is the list of performers and the videos of each performance.
