It was all fun and games this afternoon in West Duluth for the annual Raleigh academy block party. Hundreds joined in celebration of the new bully prevention program, the newly paved basketball court and playground enhancements.

Principal Danielle parish says it's an awesome way to bring the community together.

 "This is a kick off for our school year to bring together our community and our family's to celebrate the exciting things that we have coming up for the year."

 The Duluth fire department along with the Duluth police department came to lend a helping hand. All in all it looked like a great time and a good way to start off the new school year.
