Back! To! School! While parents may be more excited about this season than their kids, kids likely will get excited about suiting up for ballet or soccer or karate. Or trying out art or climbing lessons. Or hanging with their buddies at an afterschool program. If you’re looking for a place for your kids to find new interests or build on their existing skills, check out this week’s extracurriculars spectacular!
