These Blue Heron Skate City Parties are a fundraiser for the school. There is always a PTA chaperone on each bus and at the rink in order to assist younger students. Only Blue Heron students and their families are allowed in for this party. Students can ride the bus to and from the school with the signed permission slip or parents are welcome to drive on their own. Kinder and 1st graders are not allowed to ride the bus unless they are accompanied by an older sibling or adult. Each student is responsible for his or her own permission slip and money, nothing needs to be returned to school or teacher. If your child does not know how to skate, it would be best for a parent to accompany the child as this is not a lesson. Skate City rents hand-held trainers on wheels for $5. Also, please be aware that Skate City has upgraded all of the arcade games and they no longer take quarters. You need to purchase a re-loadable “game card.” You can purchase a $15 game card for $5 at the event.
