PARK TIME starts next week April 28th in Warman

Where: Warman Lions Spray Park
When: TUESDAYS 1:00 pm – 3:30ish pm

A free drop-in style weekly time for home-based educating families to get together in the great outdoors. Kids of all ages can have fun together – it is a park! There is playground equipment, spray park, lots of trees & green space. You may want to bring a ball of some kind, Frisbee, bathing suit & towel, etc, but definitely a water bottle! Parents, bring a lawn chair or blanket so we can gather in a common area for visiting, meeting new people, sharing ideas, supporting each other, or just relaxing together.

Park Time continues right through the summer, usually until it is too cold in the autumn for the moms to sit outside happily:)

This is a reminder that the Warman Diamond Arena will be closed this coming Monday, Feb. 16th for Family Day.  After that we are down to six skating times left (Mondays 1:00-3:30pm) .  If you haven’t dropped in to skating for a while or ever, please do.  There has been a good variety of ages of kids, and a few more moms on the ice too – lots for everyone.
Our last skate is on March 30th (unless they tell me otherwise).  Let’s plan to have a wind-up party on that last Monday where we bring snacks to share – I will send out a reminder for this closer to the end of March.
To all the Prairie Spirit homeschoolers – Happy Family Day!


What a great year at the rink this year! It is hard to believe but next Monday, March 17th is our last skate for the season at the Diamond Arena in Warman (1:00-3:30 pm). As tradition goes, come on out and bring snacks to share so we can make a party of it.
