With Memorial Day approaching, Dallas Afterschool would like to share The Homecoming Box co-authored by Kathleen Edick & Paula Johnson which captures the bittersweet experience of families with loved ones in the military. Recommended with Wonder Kit, Me on the Map (addresses home in relation to places further away), you can turn this special book into an effortless themed day of programming!

As the school year winds down, Dallas Afterschool wants to send a friendly reminder to our partners that at least one of your staff members on site should be CPR certified by the beginning of next year.  

For those that can't attend in person, check out this online resource that enables your staff to quickly and easily get certified online.

Trinity River Mission kicked off their "Framily" STEAM Night with Wonder Kit fun!
Families and friends had the opportunity to experience a hands-on STEAM based activity as they rotated through 4 different types of kits. What a stellar evening!
