TASK Summer Enrichment Program
The 2019 TASK Summer Enrichment Program was held at Tazewell Elementary School in June. This was the 36th year of collaboration with Tazewell County Public Schools. Special Needs students ages 4-21 in Tazewell County Public Schools had a great time attending a variety of educational and recreational programs. With a grants from the Dollar General Literacy Foundation, and the Speedway Children's Charities, teachers provided social skills training, and specialized reading instruction designed to help struggling readers. Students from Bluefield College were a great asset this year. We enjoyed the programs provided by Tazewell Public Library, Emily Hinkle's children's yoga and art with Bronwyn from Big Blue Art..
