A successful performance!
Thanks to all of our performers, the Student Council and friends for making the talent show such a success! The acts were truly inspiring and your contributions to this campaign helped us to raise the bar for next year's show. Events like are going a long way in creating a new culture at the Urban Assembly School of Law and Justice.
When Parsons first started working with SLJ, the High School students told us that they wanted to work on projects that helped to foster a sense that SLJ was their home. Since SLJ is a school that attracts students from all over Brooklyn, it is not the downtown neighborhood that shapes the identity of the school, it is something else... it's the students themselves! So how is that reflected at the school?
The next step in the partnership is to give the students a visual presence in the school by mounting flat screen monitors in the halls that can display student projects such as the talent show. First on the screens will be a showcase of the hundreds of photographs that were taken with the photobooth that was generously provided by we love photobooths as well as documentation of the event.
We have a few days left in the campaign. We've hit our target, but we can continue to grow! The funding will help us to cover our expenses and to purchase monitors and wall mounts, so please pass along the project to your friends.
