Ski and Board
Ski and board begins this December. It is a program that allows students to go skiing and snowboarding with your friends after school on Fridays. Mr.Epstein runs the ski and board program. We interviewed Mr.Epstein and Kaity Mazza about ski and board. We learned that anyone of any grade in CMS can participate in ski and board. It's Mr.Epsteins 19th year running this program. They begun this program because it's a great opportunity to hang out with friends without parents and have fun at Bolton Valley for a discount price for students. According to Kaity Mazza, she says that "It's like AMAZINGLY fun and beyond!" Mr.Epstein says, "It's so much fun you can't stand up, but not as fun as a test." We'll see you there!
