Rollerskating Begins in PE Classes

Students in grades 2nd – 5th grade will begin rollerskating in PE classes on Monday, November 4. This fun activity is a favorite with our students.  They will learn the basic rollerskating skills including forward & backward skating, cornering and stopping.  A variety of other skating games and activities will also be offered. Every participating student must wear wrist guards, a helmet and socks.  Students may bring in their own protective gear (be sure they are clearly marked with their name), but helmets & wrist guards will also be provided for those who do not  bring them from home.
