DPR Offers "DPR Fun Day" on February 14 During DC Public Schools' Professional Development Day
Second of Three "DPR Fun Days" to be held during the 2013-2014 DCPS School Year

DC Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) recently announced the second DPR Fun Day will be held on Friday, February 14, 2014.  DC Public Schools will close that entire day for staff development, therefore DPR will offer DPR Fun Day, a single-day program offering fun and enriching activities (such as sports activities, arts & crafts, and more) for children ages 6 - 12 years old. 
DPR Fun Day will be offered at 12 DPR sites on Friday, February 14, 2014 from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. Registration for Fun Day is now open.  Before care and after care will not be offered. DPR Fun Day will incorporate DPR’s “Move, Grow and Be Green” initiative, as DPR continues to plant the seeds of personal development and environmental responsibility.   
Sites offering DPR Fun Day in Wards 5, 6, and 7 are as follows:
Ward 5 :    Trinidad Recreation Center - 1310 Childress Street, NE  | (202) 727-1293

It is recommended that parents create an online account for all members of their family in DPR's registration system before the registration period in order to be prepared.
