What's Shakin'?

There is no school and no JCPRD on Monday, Sept 7th due to Labor Day.

There will be a BONUS Day (A Bonus Day=all day programming) on Tuesday, Sept 8th from 7am-6pm. Due to current staffing we will NOT be going on a field trip but Tuesday's activities include working on our hot air balloon projects which ties into the Midwest Balloon Festival held in October. The kiddos will be entering a hot air balloon contest and they will also receive FREE tickets! (check out the link below) ***Remember to bring a lunch on Tuesday!

Creation Station

Know of any pre-schoolers that want to join Creation Station? Creation Station is for kids ages 3-5. I am teaching classes this fall for the young ones at New Century Field House and Mill Creek Activity Center! If interested....check out more at

Program Director: Kelly Griffin

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!
