Memorial Skating Show 2017

                                  Burlington Ice Palace: February 2, 2017
What a great job the students did today!  What a wonderful program and opportunity that Ms. Bannon and Mr. Peterson provide for Memorial's 5th Graders. One of my favorite groups is the beginner skaters that have never skated before- what courage. If you missed any of the show, here is a video below. Great job!
