After School 'to Go' Spring 2017: Week 11


After School To Go ended the semester by highlighting students’ successes and presenting each club’s Showcase event!


Girls chose their favorite activities from this semester and recreated them for parents and teachers to observe and ask questions. Each small group became experts in their activity and career and did a fantastic job of showing what they had learned at After School To Go!
