The visual arts gallery displayed 134 pieces of artwork from 303 student artworks ranging from grades K-12 from 32 schools throughout New York! The students even gave guests a chance to take part in the fun and add to a community drawing of the five boroughs.

The performance portion of the Spring Showcase featured 12 performances; only 12 acts from all of the SASF schools that auditioned were selected to perform at the showcase. Acts ranged from a theatrical performance of Fiddler on the Roof, an a cappella chorus, an interpretation of Nelson Mandela’s release from prison, a video presentation, a Justin Timberlake montage and even a song and dance tribute to September 11.

SASF aims to “help bridge the academic performance gap among under-achieving students by extending the school day and year with wholesome, skill-building activities designed to improve New York City children’s academic performance, health and wellness, attitude towards school, self-confidence, character and values, and opportunity for lifelong employment.” SASF serves over 27,000 students in more than 150 public schools throughout New York and is the largest after school program in New York City.
