Parenting doesn’t take a break. That’s why Detroit Public Schools’ Parent Resource Centers are open for business during Spring Break with fun activities and engaging workshops for families! DPS kicked off the fun with special “Bingo with the Bunny” Days at each of the district’s 8 Parent Resource Centers on Thursday, April 2 launching a series of engaging workshops that will continue through Spring Break Week.
In addition, during Spring Break, all centers will be open Monday-Thursday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Creative themes during the break include:
- April 6: PJ’s and Movie Day, showing Annie and Night at the Museum
- April 7: Disney Day: Dress up as your favorite Disney character
- April 8: Super Hero Day: Dress up as your favorite hero
- April 9: Mom to Mom Swap, where parents/guardians can exchange their gently used children’s clothes, shoes and toys with other parents/guardians.
Every time a parent/guardian attends an activity, their name will be entered for a drawing for a free bicycle on Thursday, April 9 at 2 p.m.
