Before and After School Program Hosts Extravaganza Talent Showcase

The City Department of Parks, Recreation, and Community Facilities Before and After School Program will host its annual Extravaganza Talent Showcase program on Thursday, May 7 at 6 p.m. at Thomas Jefferson High School located at 4100 West Grace Street.

This year’s program theme, Recycle Mania will showcase how we can use recyclable and/or reusable items to create some fun, crazy, and usable things. This activity will hopefully teach students how to preserve and protect our environment, think outside the box, and be creative. The program will give each of the ten participating program sites an opportunity to showcase student talents and skills developed during the school year. Students will exhibit keyboarding, dance, art, theatre, and percussion skills to name a few.

Each site will also design, create, and assemble a table display for public viewing at City Hall. This display will showcase what students enrolled in the Before and After School Program have done during their time in the program. The displays can be viewed from May 4-8, 2015.               

For more information, please contact Deidre Davis at 646-5094.
