Guilford Parent Academy invites families to enjoy a free day of fun activities together during the seventh annual Family Fun Day, coming up on Saturday, May 20.
Family Fun Day, which takes place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at City Lake Park in Jamestown, will include activities and fun for kids of all ages. Parents, caregivers and children will have the opportunity to enjoy a day of paddleboats, swimming, waterslides, mini golf, entertainment, amusement rides and other family activities.
In addition to having a great time, parents will also have the opportunity to learn more about summer programs, find resources to help avoid the “summer slide,” get free books and more.
“The key to student success is a true partnership between the schools, parents and the community,” says Lindsay Whitley, director of Guilford Parent Academy. “GCS is committed to graduating well-rounded individuals ready to move from classroom to college and career. Family Fun Day is just one of the many ways GCS supports our students and families even when students aren’t in class.”
Local food vendors will provide a variety of snacks and meals for purchase. Families may also bring picnic lunches.
Parking will be available at Jamestown Elementary and Ragsdale High, and shuttle buses will run continuously throughout the day starting at 10:30 a.m. The park is just a short, five-minute ride away. Shuttle buses will also run from Smith High and Andrews High. Adults and children of all ages can ride the shuttles. The last shuttles to the park will be at 2 p.m. Handicapped-accessible parking will be available at the park.
Family Fun Day is sponsored by Guilford County Schools, the City of High Point and other community partners.
