Message from the P.E. Department:
The PE team would like to update everyone on the ice skating situation during PE. We have looked at the weather and it is not going to be cold enough for long enough to build a rink this year. Ice skating during PE is canceled for this year. If for some reason this changes we will let you know. We know how much the students enjoy this experience and hopefully next year we will have a colder winter. There are many rinks in the city that are still functioning, it could be a great family outing. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
