Launching Skate School
We recently announced Skate School, an opportunity for eighth and ninth grade boys who are passionate about skateboarding to skate with our varsity team and learn more about Gould.
The program, directed by English teacher and varsity skate guru Dave Bean, will open this spring. If you know anyone who might be interested, send them to the Skate School blog for more information. Mr. Bean keeps it fresh.
The announcement has begun to garner some press including this nice article in Transworld Business, a media group dedicated to action and board sports.
We are very excited about this program which nurtures the passions of both students and faculty. Mr. Bean has spent a number of years building the skateboarding program here at Gould, and Skate School is the next logical step in that process.
And, by the way, our students love the skateboarding program, evident in this video below by Pete Pontone ’10.
