Here at the Hazleton One Community Center we pride ourselves in providing great extra-curricular programs to the children of our community. Starting from July children from Kindergarten to 8th grade have been enjoying our Summer Camp programs.
The Summer Camp started with Heroes Week where we had guests representing, Firefighters, State Troopers, and the PA Game Commission who brought a wonderful dog, Sky. The children also enjoyed visits with Emergency Medical Technicians, Nurses, Physical Therapists, the Dog Shelter, and most importantly US Veterans.
HIP Summer Camp continued with Mad Scientists and Inventors week in which children learned about space, gravity, geometry, chemical reactions and other science topics.
The Class of 2017 for our Time 2 Learn Pre-k program graduated on Friday May 9. Each and every student will advance academically in school and in our programs! Thank you to Mrs. Catalina Burgos and her assistant Jason Braun for a great academic year.
Pre-k Students: Emmanuel Morales, Jacob Veras, Jayden Guichardo, Jazlyn Rose Peña, Jose Luna, Kendrew Alvarez, Lisbeth Peralta, Willalfredo Ventura
Pre- school Students: Greidysbel Luna, Jacob Gutiérrez, Marely Then, Nashley Céspedes,
