Spring Arts Showcase
Award: Honorable Mention, 2019
The Spring Arts Showcase brings students, families and community members together to celebrate the visual and performing arts at Washington Heights Expeditionary Learning School (WHEELS). This event is free and open to the public. Guests can buy food and student artwork while they enjoy watching student performances and browsing our student art gallery. This event’s purpose is threefold: to celebrate student work, to engage with our community, and to raise funds for the visual and performing arts. All of our students in grades Pre-K through 12 have the opportunity to perform or have their work displayed. The event lasts for three hours and guests are free to come and go, both in the auditorium, where music and movement performances take place, and in the cafeteria, where student artwork is displayed, students perform background music, and food is served.
