|Pool Instead of School event planned for Oct. 13 at Roeland Park Aquatic Center|
A themed pool party is the perfect antidote to bored kids on a teacher in-service day, and that's exactly why this mid-October special event is being planned at the Roeland Park Aquatic Center.
This event is called Pool Instead of School and is meant to get kids moving instead of staring at electronic devices. "Friday the 13th" is the theme for this event. Participants will be led in 30 minutes of pool games, have 90 minutes of free play in the pool, and leave with a special treat. Please register by Oct. 6 for this event.
Pool Instead of School will take place beginning at 1:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 13, at the Roland Park Aquatic Center, located at 4850 Rosewood Dr., Roeland Park. The cost for this event is $8 per person for Johnson County residents or $10 per person for nonresidents.
