Congratulations 4th and 5th Grade Downhill Skiers
Thursday, January 31, 2019 9:15 AM

Our Burroughs 4th and 5th grade students embarked on an unforgettable outing to Three Rivers Park District/Hyland Ski Area in Bloomington on Friday January 18 for the annual Physical Education Downhill Ski Trip. 

Along with our Burroughs students and staff we were exited to have so many parents, grandparents, relatives, and friends to share in this experience. The kids learned the basic fundamental skills of downhill skiing through various ski lessons while applying skiing etiquette. 
 
Once these Burroughs skiers completed their lessons they were challenging themselves with most of the hills Hyland has to offer. They were going up these hills with the use of the "magic carpet,"  "tow ropes," and "chair lifts," and descending with the skills they had learned.
 
Ask these kids what they thought about this downhill ski outing and you should get a bundle of stories that will last for years to come.
