Students call attention to afterschool programs

Students from San Francisco public schools will be trying hard to get the attention of commuters on Sunset Boulevard on Thursday.

Ulloa Elementary and Sunset Neighborhood Beacon Center students will be holding signs along the busy strip to highlight what they learn at their afterschool programs, according to the school district. The rally is one of a number of events planned in The City to draw attention to the learning that takes place after the formal school day comes to an end, the district said.

The project is one of hundreds taking place across the country Thursday and is scheduled to kick off at 4:30 p.m. at the intersections of Lawton, Ortega, Vicente and Quintara streets.

There are some 93 schools in The City that offer free afterschool programs for around 6,000 students, according to the school district.
