The Stockton Kings will travel to Spanos Elementary, Hazelton Elementary, Taylor Elementary, El Dorado Elementary, August Elementary and Van Buren Elementary to gift "Fit Kids" bags to each school and will be hosting a school assembly with Stockton Kings staff and Kaiser Permanente representatives promoting health and fitness. Each bag contains a workbook, water bottle and a reusable ice therapy pack to enjoy while practicing healthy habits.
