Jan 2015: Skateland!

After record-breaking snowstorms and DAYS of school cancellations, GovsPLUS scholars were ready to get out of the house! On January 31, we headed to Skateland in Haverhill for our second event of the school-year. It was packed at Teen Hip Hop/ R&B Night! GovsPLUS scholars had so much fun catching up with one another and rollerskating.

While some were already experts, others were first-time or beginner skaters. It was great to see everyone step out of their comfort zone!

Some had more fun hanging out on the side, laughing with their friends, listening to music, eating pizza, and taking pictures.

It was a great night! GovsPLUS is looking forward to our next event at Boston College on February 28th. GovsPLUS scholars should RSVP to Ms. Cruz for the trip, which will include a college tour with a Govs alum, lunch, and a men’s basketball game against NC State.

Until then, stay warm and safe out there, GovsPLUS. Enjoy the never-ending SNOWPOCALYPSE!
