    The 2018-19 school year is sprinting down the home stretch, with high school graduations starting Sunday, and the final day of classes set for June 12. After that? It’s summer break! Our friends at Portland Parks & Recreation have all kinds of free ways to keep your students active. From them: 

    Students can find food and fun activities all summer long through Summer Free For All, a partnership between Portland Public Schools and Portland Parks & Recreation.

    The program offers free lunches, music from around the world, family-friendly movies, art, sports and games in Portland’s parks. Free swimming is available, with no registration, in city pools during set days and hours.

    In the online schedule for Summer Free For All, you will also find several cultural festivals, including a Tonga Day, Slavic Festival, a Muslim Cultural Festival, and Festival Latino.

    There is something for everyone—and best of all, it’s free! A complete list of events, locations, dates, and times is available online. You can find the online guide in eight more languages through the Portland Parks & Recreation website.
