21st Century Community Learning Centers

Students and parents, this week please be sure to submit an application for The 21st Century Community Learning Center, the largest federally funded after school program in the nation. At Hilsman, it will be STE[A]M (science, technology, engineering, art and math) focused to support math and literacy through project-based learning.

Explore the aspects of theater, learn about robotics, explore the culinary arts, or learn about crime investigation (CSI) and more. Help personalize the program to fit your interest. It begins with an application. Please see Ms. Hayes for an application during lunch or pick up one in the main office. Let’s make this program one that benefits you and our entire community. Here's 2 min. video about the program:
