Ice Skating Rink in Peacham

Ice RinkPEACHAM - Students at The Peacham School are very excited for recess this time of year since a popular tradition is now up and running. The school has transformed the outdoor basketball court into a fully functioning ice skating rink.

 "They are always ready for it and so I try and get it up as soon as possible," said Eric Kaufman, a parent volunteer.

The tradition started about three years ago, and ever since, when winter comes, the students are eager to get out on the ice.

"There is a parent- teacher group here at the school called the parent- teachers and friends, so we are the PTF organization, of which I'm an active member," said Kauffman.  "We bought the materials and every year the PTF buys a new liner because it tends to get damaged and what not."

If you don't have skates or the proper gear that is not a problem since the school has received donations of skates and helmets for students to use.
