6TH GRADE IS PE EXPERIENCE!

 

March 31, 1:00–2:00 PM
International School
Sign up here.
 
Give your 6th grader a casual taste of PE
 
at IS by running—or walking—off-campus PE running routes with volunteer high school students! This is a great way to get outside, get moving, feel connected to IS, and meet fellow students. Each meeting, high school students (and volunteer parents!) will lead our 6th graders on one of IS's many runs—Short Kelsey, Long Kelsey, Secret Garden—just name a few!
 
There are no timers or competitions! Join us for a voluntary meet-up and make some new friends!
 
Check out the SignUpGenius page for more info and to sign up. More dates will be added soon.
 
Sponsored by ISPTSA.
