New Childcare Center in Monroeville to Open This Fall!
Reclamation Community Center over by Monroeville Community park opened over a year ago with high hopes of serving the surrounding community. We established a food pantry, a free health clinic is in the works, and had desired to create a program (or multiple programs) for children. With plans to get programs up and running that would benefit low-income families, there were many ideas on the table, but how would these ideas turn into successful programs? What is the most immediate need in the area right now? One of the most immediate needs of the community here in Monroeville, as well as many communities nation-wide, is childcare. There just aren't enough childcare programs period, and high quality ones at that. We have been so graciously supported by so many people who want to be involved and this has made our dreams come to life! We are proud to announce that Reclamation Community Center will be opening Haven Childcare Center this coming fall! We are a faith-based, project-based childcare center that loves and utilizes the outdoors! There are three separate programs. Haven Daycare will be open from 7am-6pm Monday through Friday year round accepting infants through age 5. Haven Preschool will be 9am-12pm on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from September to May accepting children ages 3-5. Haven Hybrid Homeschool will be from 9am-2pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays from September to May accepting children in grades PreK-5 who are already taking part in a homeschool curriculum.

Congratulations 6th Grade Graduates!
Turner Intermediate celebrated the graduation of their phenomenal 6th grades students as they advance in their school career. Graduating is not something that you get to do every day. It isn't even something that everybody gets to do in their lifetimes. This is a special time where we rally around our students whether it is grade school, college, etc. to uplift the student's hard work and initiative. It is a really special event. It allows you to brush away the stress of years of hard work and that lingering feeling that you forgotten to do something, and celebrate with the people who have been on this journey with you. Sending a huge congratulations to all of Wilkinsburg's 2024 graduates
