The start of a new school year isn’t all fresh new school supplies and reuniting with long lost friends from before summer vacation. It can also be a stressful time for kids, especially if they’re going from a mostly unstructured summer schedule to the rigors of school, sports, clubs, etc. Fortunately, back to school doesn’t have to be a bummer. Kick off the school year with some fun by throwing a roller skating party for your child’s class or school! At Southwestern Skate, we make it easy to host group events in Oklahoma City, whether you’ve got a group of 10 or 100.
3 Reasons to book a school skating party
- To break the ice. Forget boring ice-breaker games, a skating party is a great way to get new classmates laughing and interacting. Those skating rink bonds will make everyone a lot more comfortable when they’re back in the classroom. Even parents and teachers can get in on the mingling, so you’ll have more than just a head nod to give each other next time you’re stuck together in the pick-up line or PTA meeting.
- To keep the fun going. The end of summer can seem like the end of fun and freedom when you’re a kid, but a back to school party is a great way to show them that the academic year will be fun too!
- To get some exercise. Childhood obesity and sedentary lifestyles are affecting more and more families these days, so why not multitask and choose an activity that’s actually good for your guests – like roller skating. Skating has many health benefits, including increased stamina, muscle tone, and coordination.
Don’t wait too long to book your school event, or the hustle of the year will make it hard to schedule. Here’s to another great school year in OKC!
