What is Ready4K?
Developed by educational researchers, Ready4K is an evidence-based text messaging program for parents of newborns, 1-, 2-, 3-, 4- and 5-year-olds provided at no cost. Each week, you will receive fun facts and easy tips to boost your child's learning. Ready4K activities build on the things that you already do with your child -- like getting your child dressed, meal time, and bath time -- to make boosting your child's learning fast, fun, and easy. The research behind Ready4K shows that receiving fun facts and easy tips can significantly increase children's learning.

No one knows what is in the parade until parade day!  Sure, we know there will be marching bands, but what music will they play?  There will be parade princesses and beauty queens, but how will they wave? What will they be dressed in?  There will be floats - lots of floats, but how well will they be decorated? It's time to make new memories and be a part of the largest parade in Union County.

Make plans to join us and begin planning your parade entry today!
