Ice Skates for Military Students

Help me give my students a fleet of ice skates that can adjust to fit a variety of foot sizes.

My Students

Our students are special. Most are from military families and have a unique perspective because of it. A lot of them have lived more places than I have and their vast experiences show through as they tackle even the toughest challenges. They are attentive, respectful, and the hardest workers I have had the pleasure to teach.

As military children, our students tend to move every 2-3 years and they would greatly benefit from activities that connect them to the unique opportunities in Alaska.

My Project

This project's goal is to purchase a fleet of ice skates for our school. We have already raised the funds to create and maintain an ice rink, so we only need skates to open the doors for our students to learn a new skill. These requested Lake Placid Boys' Summit adjustable ice skates will allow our school to teach ice skating to our students. This is important because it teaches our students a skill that directly connects them to Alaska. It also allows the students to stay active during the long dark winter months that so often foster stagnation.

By helping us purchase these skates, you are creating opportunities for our students to stay active in their new community.
