Family Learning event nets miles of childrens’ smiles

An excited student reads through a book during the Prairie Public Education Services’ Wild Kratts-themed Family Learning Event at Killdeer School on Feb. 15.


“Awesome family fun” was the catchphrase of the evening on Feb. 15 as the Killdeer School Library hosted Prairie Public Education Services’ Wild Kratts-themed Family Learning Event.


For Dunn County Herald
After students and parents enjoyed a supper prepared and served by Margaret and Sami, they worked their evening missions at seven learning stations to complete “habitat passports.” All stations were manned by Station Rangers (teacher volunteers) who facilitated the biology-themed lessons and activities.
Upon receiving “mission completed” status, kids were awarded a free book and pencil, and parents received additional free learning resources to take home. The highlight of the evening was the Wild Kratts Photo Booth for family photo opportunities in a jungle setting complete with wild animals. Parents found the evening to be a wonderful opportunity to actively engage with their children in learning.
The entire evening of learning stations, photo booth and supper was a result of a $2500 grant awarded to the Killdeer School Library by Prairie Public Education Services. We thank Prairie Public for this opportunity and appreciate their dedication to education.
The next learning event will be an author visit from Bridget Heos on March 3.
Please call the school at 764-5877 for information.
