Persunda Raymond

Red River Academic Academy hosted its Family Literacy Night on Wednesday, September 27, 2023. Valuable information was shared with parents to help their children at home with reading, vocabulary, and other literacy skills.

RRAA was honored to have as special guests, the Northwestern State University Men’s Basketball Team. The team interacted with students and parents by participating and conducting games and various other activities.

Students took pictures, painted rocks, designed bookmarks, had their faces painted, book walked and played Head’s Up, Boggle and other ELA games. Door prizes were given out!!

Red River Academic Academy would like to thank everyone for their support.
