On February 14 the Seventh Graders of Vassal Lane went on a skating field trip to the Steriti Memorial Rink in Boston’s North End. Many students had fun watching people fall down. “I enjoyed seeing Mohammed fall,” said Siem Yebio, when asked what he liked about the trip. Students also were delighted to miss school. “I liked that we were gone for the entire day” said Io Andersen. Sam Costa agreed. Grace Austin echoed others in her enthusiasm for the day’s drink of choice, saying “I liked the hot chocolate.” Afiyah Master said her favorite thing about the trip was the skating. The only complaint was the long slushy walk to Harvard Station to board the T. Elsa Head remarked on what quick learners the first-time skaters were. “France Kely went from falling down to mastering hockey moves. He should join a hockey team.”
