Blackduck Elementary goes rollerskating

Blackduck Elementary has been rollerskating like crazy!

Last week and this week, students in K-6 have enjoyed roller skating during gym class. Mr. Gross contacted a skating company and was able to make skating available to each student in K-6. The cost for a week of skating (five total hours for each student) was $7.

The elementary fitness fund donated $2 towards every student's skating fee to drop the total price to $5! The students enjoyed this new event with Mr. Gross. Many kids were able to put a roller skates on for the very first time in their life.

It was a bumpy start and many falls were happening, but by the end of the week most kids were able to skate! The staff and students would like to have this opportunity happen every year and hope in the future that we can have our own set of skates at school! Without a gym teacher, this wouldn't have ever happened.

On behalf of the students and staff, we thank Cody Gross for his hard work in making this possible for our students.
