School Outreach Programs

Blackhawk Art Program

Art inspires creativity in our immediate neighborhood. Supporting the District 186 SCOPE after school program SCCC provides an art program at Blackhawk Elementary School. Members volunteer to teach students grades K-5 arts and crafts during the year.

A class session credit is given for every two hours volunteering at Blackhawk Elementary School.

Volunteers meet at Blackhawk Elementary School, 2500 S. College St., on the third Tuesday of each month at 3:00 P.M during the school year.

Blackhawk Winter Clothing Drive

Children’s sized outerwear, gloves, mittens, socks, sweatshirts, and underwear are very needed and appreciated to donate to Blackhawk Elementary students. Drop donations off at specially marked collection boxes at SCCC. SCCC Clothing drive dates will be posted.

Harvard Park Annual Rewards Program

Through the SCCC Ceramics Program and with the help of volunteer members, students of Harvard Park School decorate ceramic tiles with acrylic paint as a reward for their good behavior.  Over the past several years 350-400 students have been able to participate in this event at the end of each February.  Students look forward to this treat which not only encourages both good behavior but also allows for a student’s creative expression.
