Middle school ice skaters glide into fun

Students savor a cold day on the ice with hot treats, board games, and a pair of skates to go

Excitement filled the air as over seventy junior high students flooded the ice skating rink, invited by the Middle School Student Council (MSSC) for a day of icy fun. Laughter echoed in the skating rink at Suseong Lake as friends glided and twirled this past Jan. 25th. 

“It was a perfect amount of time. Nobody got hurt, there was tons of food, we had lots of food left over, and we had board games in case people got bored and didn’t want to skate anymore. But everybody had so much fun skating and eating and just socializing that we didn’t even need the board games. We also had lots of chaperones that helped out, so that was really helpful,” said Mrs. Jolly, the coordinator of the MSSC.

From novice skaters to veterans, kids enjoyed the opportunity to practice their skills. “I’ve been to the ice rink before, but with the school, it was my first time. It was very nice, and since I had my friends, it was better. We all kind of skated together. We didn’t just separate and skate — we helped each other if students didn’t know how to skate,” said Luisa Silva in seventh grade.

As the party drew to a close around 6 p.m., the middle schoolers bid farewell to each other with new memories to take home. The MSSC’s winter event wrapped up the first and coldest month of the new year.

    I enjoyed the skating very much even though I fell 2 times. It’s hurts to fall on ice.
