Families enrolled in Parents as Teachers are able to join a series of events designed to engage young children and their families.
So far this month, families have engaged in a Scavenger Hunt on the trail located at the Center for Academic Achievement. A Walk and Talk was also held to give family members a chance to enjoy some physical activity while connecting and supporting one another. More events are coming up soon.
