EXTENDED!!! We are extending Grandparents Day Walk & Roll through next week, September 20th, to accommodate for the Air Quality. Here are a few ways to celebrate grandparents and grandfriends…indoors:
FSK has a long tradition of involved and dedicated Grandparents and GrandFriends that help out at home, as volunteers in the classroom, on the PTA, and from afar. Our school’s PTA has always celebrated Grandparents Day with a lunch date at school when ‘Grands’ join their kids in the school garden for lunch. We can’t do this together safely this year, so let’s have a Grandparents’ Day Walk and Roll!
WHAT: Join us September 13-20, 2020 to celebrate the GRANDS in your life by running, strolling, or rolling along on the beautiful Great Highway. Our Walk and Roll is open anytime all week. It’s a casual and independent event that can be done individually, with friends, classmates, and grandparents. The Great Highway is a flat, paved route that is perfect for walking, bikes, strollers, wheelchairs and jogging.
WHERE: Start at Great Highway at Sloat. ***Suggested routes: SLOAT to MORAGA and back = 5K (3.1 miles)! SLOAT to LINCOLN and back = 4.2 miles!
WHEN: Anytime 9/13 – 9/20. The Walk and Roll can be done independently or in groups of families — it’s up to you!
WHO: Bring your classmates, family, even Grandparents! Practice social distancing and safe mask protocols while you honor the grandparents (past and present) in your life.
***Please print out the special Grandparents Day BIB below and wear it during your walk & roll this week!***
