CHAMPS Students Enjoy an Afternoon on the Ice
For an early release day on February 26th, approximately 70 Crescent CHAMPS students visited the Rhinelander Ice Arena for an afternoon of activities. The Rhinelander Ice Association (RIA) donated the facility, and the high school boys and girls hockey players tied skates and led all training for the day. The major activities included large group instruction, small group work, and open skate. Hot chocolate was also provided to the students.
Kudos to the 17 members of the boys and girls hockey teams for their expertise, patience, general nurturing, and youthful carefree manner. These high school students donated their time on an early-release day so that students 4-8 years old could have a positive experience on the ice. The interaction between the little ones and the teenagers was amazing.
