"Bring Your Child to Work" Day: June 19 - 9:30-12:30
We know… the rest of the country celebrated "Bring your child to work day" in April, but our family wellness program wouldn't be complete without witnessing the joy on our kids’ faces as they get to hang out with their parents and join in a day of fun activities. Kids, grand-kids, foster kids are all welcome.
At 9:30, we will meet at the lower campus in front of Gleeson Hall for a Walk through USF. On this adventure, you and your child will get a tour of "secret spots" around campus. We'll then spend some fun active time at Koret and finish up with a tour of our cafe and enjoy a delicious, kid friendly lunch. Don't miss out on the fun! Put the date on your calendar now and please rsvp here.
