RUSD Hosts Family Empowerment Day for Hundreds of Families


On Saturday, May 7, RUSD held its first ever Family Empowerment Day at Park High School.

Partnering with the Racine community, Park High School opened its doors to the entire community for this free event. Hundreds of families enjoyed dozens of family-friendly activities, free food and refreshments, raffles and educational activities for both parents and children.

RUSD staff were on hand all day to guide families through registering for summer school, after-school programs and more.

At the end of the day, students, families and school staff went head to head in the dance off. Fifteen schools participated, showing off their moves. Case High School, Starbuck Middle School and Knapp Elementary School won the competition for their grade levels, earning them a trophy and $500 to use for their school.

Thank you to everyone who helped make this event such a huge success!
