The event is a fundraiser for the Options program.
According to coordinator LeOnna Small, there are 28 entries of all youth ages in the talent show. The youngest: a 3-year-old will do a performance piece (we’re not making this up) reenacting the birth of a dinosaur from an egg.
The entertainment lineup includes two standup comedians, a hip hop artist, and a unicyclist. The day features food, bouncy house and carnival games from noon to 3 p.m., the talent show from 3-5 p.m., and a raffle (items include jewelry pieces, just in time for Mother’s Day). Local bands — Organized Confusion with Oliver Hall and Ella Smith is confirmed — close out the day beginning at 5:30 p.m.
“This is all about the kids — by the kids for the kids,” Small said. “We want to get rid of the lines between our schools. We’re all just kids who want to have fun.”

The North Kitsap School District is asking the north end community to provide feedback for a strategic plan that will be used to help guide decisions and create goals and plans.
A survey is available on the district’s website, which can be accessed here.
The survey takes about five minutes and is multiple choice.
Once the survey is complete, a planning team will meet in late June to analyze the data from the survey and meetings, which were held in May. The team will create three to five “strategic directions” for the school district.
The survey is open through midnight of June 16.
