On April 1st, Borough President James Oddo checked in on I.S. 51’s after school program. B.P. Oddo got a chance to talk to the students about the importance of enriching classwork with extra-curricular programs. Then it was the students’ turn to show off everything they have learned in the after school program. The I.S. 51 Jazz Band serenaded the Borough President with a fantastic rendition of the classic song “Stand By Me” as well as some improvisational pieces. Members of the Drama Club performed songs and dances from the musical Fiddler on the Roof. Showcasing their creativity, students in the Science Club recited an original poem they wrote. Art Club members displayed their drawing and painting skills—even presenting B.P. Oddo with one of their own original pieces.
