Out of School Time Newsletter - October 2015

Keeping Busy!

It's hard to believe that the first quarter of the school year is almost over! Didn't we just start school last week??? We have been having a great time this year. There have been all kinds of activities going on - painting, building, running and making different kinds of playdough

Don't forget to follow @JCPRDGardnerOST on Twitter for up-to-date emergency closing procedures as well as pictures of your kids in action in our Out of School TIme program!

Great Midwest Balloon Fest

The Junior League of Wyandotte and Johnson Counties asked all of the JCPRD programs to create a craft hot air balloon for auction as part of the Great Midwest Balloon Fest. We made a sunflower themed balloon.

The Great Midwest Balloon Fest will take place October 23-24 at the AG Hall of Fame adjacent to Cricket Wireless Amphitheater. We should find out what business will have our balloon on display following the festival!
