“Lights On! After School” was a familiar chant resonating in After School Programs across the nation on October 26th. The Annual Lights On! After School event brings the importance of After School Programs into the spotlight. On this day, we celebrate After School Programs and their impact on the lives of children, families and the community.
AP Giannini in the Sunset District celebrated by having students performances, a balloon drop featuring some very special guests, and a carnival. Giannini students provided a variety of different showcases ranging from a dance performance to Club showcases and a spooky play. Supervisor Katy Tang and San Francisco Assessor Carmen Chu also showed up to lead a coordinated balloon drop. Supervisor Katy Tang also presented Giannini Program Manager Annie Ma and Site Coordinator Vivian Ton with Certificates of Honor while SF Assessor Carmen Chu presented the Program with a Certificate of Recognition. Afterwards, students enjoyed a carnival with fun games, carnival treats and a fun photo booth! Way to go AP Giannini!
