Shining a Light on Afterschool Programs

More than 200 kids converged on Wilson Middle School on October 24 to take part in “Lights on Afterschool, an annual nationwide event celebrating afterschool programs in our communities. BGCP Slavik Branch members joined kids from Willard Learns, Willard Adventure Club, Wilson Learns, Hamilton Learns, and Hamilton Adventure Club for a special carnival, complete with games, arts and crafts projects, and physical activities including relay and three-legged races. The event was highlighted by the Willard chorus, which sang the National Anthem, and a performance by the Wilson Learns cheer squad.  Meanwhile, our Mackenzie-Scott Branch members participated in a Lights On event at Washington Middle School, which featured a performance by our very own Dance Girls!
