Over February break, Best Buddies members stayed connected by participating in a family ice-skating event. Members demonstrated NMS’s GREAT values by trying something new, having a positive attitude, and giving their best effort. It was wonderful to see some of our first-time skaters gain confidence on the ice and some of our more experienced skaters offering words of encouragement! Members and their families were joined by the following staff: Ms. Santiago, Mrs. Norftill, Ms. Girard, Ms. Berry, Ms. Frey, Mrs. Larochelle and Ms. Thomas.
Special thanks to 8th grader Nick U for suggesting this trip! This was his first time ice-skating and his excitement and determination was impressive!
