It may feel like the peak of summer when you step outside, but there’s another season on the horizon – back-to-school time! Stores are putting out backpacks, folders, and pencils, and kids are starting to realize that they don’t have many lazy days of summer left before North Tonawanda City Schools are back in session. If you’re involved with your child’s school, it’s also time to start planning back-to-school parties!
Check out our tips for throwing a great school event or class party from your friends at Rainbow Roller Rink.
Don’t wait until the last minute.
You’ve probably told your kids not to wait until the last minute to work on a project or write a paper… So be a good example and plan your school event early! The sooner you make your reservation, the more likely you’ll be to get your ideal date and time. Plus, having the details finalized earlier means you can send invitations out early, so more families will be able to attend.
Make space for everyone.
One of the best things you can do for your back to school party or school fundraiser is to choose a venue and activity that everyone can enjoy – not just the students! Roller skating is a smart option because kids and adults of all ages can enjoy it, as well as playing games in our arcade. We even have a bouncy playground for the little ones, so families with younger kids won’t have to get a babysitter or miss the event all together.
Do some good.
Whether you’re getting your child’s classmates together for a class ice-breaker or planning a school-wide back-to-school party, why not pull double duty and add a fundraiser element? You could encourage families to bring canned goods for a local food bank, or raise money for a school project like new playground equipment. Our fundraiser rebate parties are a fun way to raise money for your organization, and your guests will have a blast!
