It's a great day to be in KCK! There is so much going on in our area and we are so happy to be a small part of it! You may not be aware quite yet but Kansas City, KS and its area businesses/attractions have received multiple awards as of late.
One of the most exciting serves as an accolade for the educators of our community. America's Promise Alliance chose Kansas City, KS as one of 2012's Best Communities for Young People. Communities were judged based on extensive criteria some of which had to do with test scores and drop-out rates for young people. As a result of a concerted effort by youth programs and schools to acheive unification, educators saw an increase in math proficiency from 3% to 68% and a jump in reading proficiency from 11% to 67% on state assessments.
Kansas City, KS is a first time winner of this award. We send our thanks and congratulations to all who have worked so hard and invested so much to make this possible! THANK YOU for making our community a better place!
Another exciting award has been presented to Schlitterbahn Waterpark here in Kansas City, KS. They recently received international recognition from Amusement Today's Golden Ticket Awards. They were honored with being named the home of the World's Second Best New Waterpark Ride with their King Kaw River Rapids ride that opened at the beginning of the 2012 summer season.
If you didn't make it out to the park this year, make sure you don't miss out in 2013! It really is a lot of fun -- great for the whole family!
P.S. Don't forget to make Chateau Avalon your place to stay when you come to KC! Look for special offers coming soon!
