Spring Break was great! Check out these pics!

The Basketball players from LSUS: The Pilots

The team came to Broadmoor and taught the kids about character and leadership. They also signed autographs, played basketball with the kids and they got to see them at the game at Municipal Auditorium. They taught the kids these 11 words for success:

"Yes Ma'am," " No Ma'am," Yes Sir", " No Sir," "Please," Thank you,"

Good Times at JCPRD!

Artifact Adventure

A rather new experience at JCPRD Trailwood (due to a lack of a playground ) At Artifact Adventure they practice environmental literacy. They get their hands dirty by creating artifacts and they even have their own bartering system and tribes. They even made their own fire out of dry leaves and a magnifying glass (supervised, of course).

Fun Event for Kids!

APRIL 9, 2016
10 AM - 1 PM

JCPRD's Children Service's Trucks and Big Rigs
Have you ever wondered what the inside of that big rig or tractor looks like? Do you have a child who LOVES trucks? Bring them out to the parking lot of The Theatre in the Park, located in beautiful Shawnee Mission Park, to explore trucks, tractors, construction, and city vehicles up close. Crawl, climb, and sit in the driver's seat and talk with the real life operators of these vehicles. We also feature the tow truck character from the animation movie: Cars, as well as many other kids favorites.

Benefiting Special Olympics & Special Populations
Admission to this four-hour event is free, but a donation of $10 per participant vehicle is suggested at the gate. All proceeds will benefit the JCPRD Special Olympics and Special Populations Department.

Mission Statement: Developing health and happiness in our community's children through safe, diverse, and character-building experiences.

This will be my third year at Trailwood with JCPRD! I Absolutely love my job and I love these kiddos! I love that I get to teach them about kindness, tolerance and acceptance and my personal favorite....gratitude and giving back to others! I have worked with kiddos since I was one many.... many years ago. I earned a Master's Degree in Elementary Education In 2011 at Rockhurst University. My undergrad was at K-State so Go Cats! On the side I worked in animal rescue and I eat a lot of spicy foods ;-) looking forward to a great school year!
