Rapides Parish Schools LogoChildren ages 3-10 years old and their families are invited to take part in a variety of activities designed especially for them to enjoy together. These activities help boost intellectual and physical development that can translate into better school performance. The activities also strengthen the bond between parent and child. The parents will also be provided with educational materials that suggest activities that can be enjoyed at home and that will help the child with school work. Each activity is led by a teacher or paraprofessional from RPSB who volunteers her time.
