Gr. 5 & 6: Inline Skating Unit Information

Dear 5th & 6th Grade Parents:

Beginning Monday, February 16th our Physical Education classes will begin five days of inline skating through Skate Time School Programs. The skates will be delivered directly to the school and because the skates have soft wheels we will be skating on the gym floor. Therefore, It is required to use the skates provided by the Skate Time School Program.

Inline skating is a “lifetime sport” that enhances balance, coordination, and motor skills. Inline skating is also one of the top rated sports for cardiovascular endurance. During the program students will learn basic inline skating skills including forward and backward skating, cornering, stopping, and a variety of other skating games and activities. A wrist guard will also be provided for safety.

The fee for inline skating is $9.00 dollars per student. The fee will be charged to each student’s account following the unit.

Regards,

Melody Owsley & Tim Ellis
