Beginning on March 20th, 2023, our Physical Education classes will be participating in an in-house
skating program. The skates will be delivered directly to the school. Due to insurance purposes, we will be
exclusively using Skatetime’s skates.
This skating unit is being implemented because of its emphasis as a “Lifetime Activity”. Skating provides a
variety of benefits, which include balance, coordination, motor skills, and a top-rated cardio-respiratory workout.
Students will also learn basic skating skills such as starting, stopping, forward skating, backward skating,
cornering, and several safety tips for being a smart skater.
The fee for this unit will be $ 12.00 for quad skates per student. Four Corners PTA is paying $1000
towards the cost, so your cost will be $7. The fee includes delivery and pickup of the equipment as well as use of
the skates for 5 days of skating during normal P.E. Class.
