Claudia Castillo-Chavez wrote to the Houston Parks and Recreation Department to express her appreciation for the HPARD Summer Enrichment Programs. Here's what she had to say:
"As a parent, I can tell you that this program was a savior; not only because of the affordable price, but because of the location, the quality, and variety of the activities/fieldtrips," Castillo-Chavez wrote.
"My daughter attended the program at the Beverly Hills Community Center. It was her first time; and she totally enjoyed the activities, the instructors, and the friendships made. Ms. Stephanie, Ms. Kiki, and all of the volunteers had the most amazing ideas to keep the kids active and entertained every day. Thank you to all of the parties involved to make the S.E.P. available and looking forward to see you at the after school program," she wrote.
