grade level playdates - *PLEASE NOTE NEW DATE FOR 2ND GRADE

We will host a series of playdates, one for each grade level on six different days in September at Castle Park, North Rose Hill Woodlands Park, 9930 124th Ave NE, Kirkland.


Because these playdates happen in the evening from 5:30-7pm, we encourage families to bring their own picnic dinners or snacks. Food will not be provided. Unless eating or drinking, we request that all people wear masks and maintain social distancing while at the playdate.


Each playdate will have a grade level host, so please check in, say hello and make a name tag! Siblings are welcome. Please see the information below for each grade’s date and host:
