Summer Community Events

Greetings, TIS Families!
I hope that you all are enjoying your summers, and are finding ways to stay cool in this heat! Just a reminder that we’ve got fun community activities coming up in August. Follow this link for more information and to RSVP!
BRIDGE PEDAL – Sunday August 9th. Refreshments at TIS 10:30am – 1:00pm Now in its 20th year, the Providence Bridge Pedal is a great community event and a wonderful way to enjoy the city. Plus, you’ll get an early chance to preview the new bridge, Tilikum Crossing, before it officially opens in September! There are several route options, with various start times.** Families will need to register for the Bridge Pedal to participate in the ride. Use the TIS Friends and Family Discount Code and get $5 off your registration: 15BP7739 The bike rides start and end in Waterfront Park, just north of TIS. When you are done, come to the TIS playground between 10:30-1:00 to enjoy some refreshments.
**Please note that the Kids Pedal route does NOT include the Tilikum Crossing. If you are interested in this bridge, pick another route, or head on over after the TIS refreshments to participate in the People’s Preview of Tilikum Crossing. This is separate from the Bridge Pedal, but is a chance for all community members to walk or bike across the new bridge. No registration is necessary, and no fees will be charged.
KINDERGARTEN FAMILY PLAYDATE – Saturday, August 22nd 10am – noon A special event for our Kindergarten families at Sellwood Park. This is a great opportunity to meet other Kindergarten families, both new and returning.
PREK AND LOWK FAMILY PLAYDATE – Saturday, August 29th 10am – noon A special event for our preschool families at Sellwood Park. This is a great opportunity to meet other preschool families, both new and returning.
