6th Grade Bowling Outing

posted Jul 31, 2017, 10:22 AM by Crystal Kaza

  To kick off the coming school year, we’ve arranged for a 6th grade bowling mixer at neighboring Corbin Bowl right after orientation on August 7th- that way you can get everything squared away at Portola Middle School, then come over and get to know each other before school starts – the parents can mingle while kids bowl. Some of the representatives for the Portola Magnet Parents Association will be there as well to welcome you to the school and answer any questions you may have.

Corbin Bowl has given us a reduced fee of only $14 per person, which includes shoes, two hours of bowling time and a pizza with drink lunch. 

Place: Corbin Bowl
located at 19616 Ventura Blvd, Tarzana, CA 91356
Date: Monday, August 7th
Time: 11am-1pm (right after orientation).
Cost: $14 per 6th grader (or sibling)
