RESOURCES! A resource is used for a purpose, for example, educational materials and tools. Resources can also be a physical place, like a library! We use resources to study, to work, and to help our children complete schoolwork. Let’s enjoy some local resources for quality free time this Summer! Enjoy a wonderful and safe hike at one of the parks listed below.
