Preschoolers get Happy Feet

The Redmond Area Park and Recreation District offers many classes and fun events for all ages.

During Happy Feet, for ages 3 and 4, children will run, kick, hop and jump their way into sports and games. This is a high-energy class and is built around learning great new skills or participating in a favorite game. Each session features a different activity. In November the class features parachute games and in December basketball. Parents are required to participate with their child, so tennis shoes should be worn and parents should prepare to have a blast playing with their youngsters.

Sign up today by calling 541-548-7275, fax to 541-548-6067, or visit www.raprd.org.
