They say time flies when you’re having fun, but it’s still hard to believe that the first day of school for students in Prince George’s County will be in less than a month, on Tuesday, September 3rd! While you’re checking off those school supply lists, shopping for clothes and backpacks, and stocking up on hand sanitizer, don’t forget to make a reservation for your back-to-school party at Lanham Skate Center!
Why host a back-to-school party at all?
There are many reasons to celebrate the start of a new school year with a roller skating party, but these are a few of our favorites:
- Keep the summer fun going – Returning to a rigid schedule full of catching the bus, homework, and all of the other school year responsibilities can feel like a lot for kids, especially if they’ve spent all summer with a less-structured schedule. A roller skating party will help them remember that the fun doesn’t stop just because school is in session.
- Break the ice – Even more importantly, a back-to-school skating party can help new classmates break the ice and get more comfortable with each other. And it’s not just the kids who will benefit; parents and teachers will also appreciate getting to know each other outside of the drop-off/pick-up line.
- Get the kids moving – Summer is a sedentary season for many kids, which can contribute to childhood obesity. Kick off the year with some physical activity by throwing a skating party. Roller skating is a great workout that doesn’t feel like a workout, even though you’re strengthening muscles, improving balance, and burning calories.
