Parents and children enjoyed a wild time at an event hosted by the Harrisonville School Districts Parents As Teachers program.
Wild and Wacky was held in two sessions one in the morning and one in the evening. Wild and Wacky is an event held twice each year focusing on physical activity at which children crawl, climb and slide through an obstacle course made up of large soft objects.
