This year, the last school bell won’t actually ring. So let’s officially ring in summer all across our colorful state. On Friday, May 29 at 3 p.m., grab a bell, step outside and ring it for the kids and the teachers. Ring it for the front line. Ring it for what really matters. And ring in better days ahead.
Set a reminder on your phone, help spread the word and share your bell-ringing videos on your social feed using #RingInSummer and #GenerationWild so we can gather them all. Let’s hear it, Colorado. Let’s ring in summer!
Want to make the moment even more unforgettable? Set up a virtual hangout with your fellow students, teachers, parents-in-the-thick-of-it, family near and far, or anyone else who likes to cause a ruckus. Set your screen to gallery mode so you can see everyone’s smiling face and hit record.
We can all use a little fresh air these days. Go for a stroll around your neighborhood. Mosey down a local trail. Spend time in your backyard or on your balcony and feel the warm sun on your face. Treat yourself and your family to the stress-relieving, immunity-boosting, feel-good-vibes that only nature can provide. Stay wild. Stay safe. Stay close to home.
