Here is a message from Mrs. Belshaw: Our skating program was a success! I'd like to thank the 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade classes, and Miss Crim's and Mrs. Krep's junior high classes. They helped with the PreK and Kindergarten classes so they could learn to skate. Also, I would like to give a shoutout to the parents who donated to help pay toward the skating program and to an anonymous donor who paid for over half of the skating cost to reduce it to only five dollars! I could not have provided this opportunity without all pf this help. Thank you! Enjoy the pics from the NCES skating unit!
