The Kaw Nation Housing Authority, in collaboration with Kaw Nation and KHDD, recently hosted a spectacular Back to School Bash, marking the beginning of a new school year. The event, now a much-anticipated annual tradition, provided fun in the sun for school-age children and their families. The festivities kicked off featuring three massive 25-foot inflatable water slides and a giant, enclosed bounce house. Excitement filled the air as kids splashed down the slides, bidding farewell to the lazy days of summer with water-filled adventure. Kaw children also enjoyed a number of contests and games that were coordinated by event organizers.

Adding a flavorful touch to the event, a featured taco truck was on-site, treating attendants to authentic Mexican food. The tantalizing aroma of tacos wafted through the air, creating a communal dining experience that brought everyone together in the spirit of celebration.

Beyond the festivities, the Back to School Bash played a vital role in community engagement. Employees and directors from various Kaw Nation departments, including Social Services, Human Resources, and the Justice Center, were present, reinforcing the community’s commitment to supporting its members. Attendees had the opportunity to connect with these representatives, gaining valuable insights into the array of services and resources available within the community.
