Snowboarding at WES

In snowboarding terms, Washburn Elementary School is ‘shreddin’ it’s way into history as the first school in the state of Wisconsin to bring a gym snowboarding curriculum into their Physical Education classes.

The Boulder Colo. company Skate Pass, LLC and Burton Snowboards have teamed up with WES to launch the program, which is the first-ever snowboarding program to be taught in the gym. It was brought to Washburn thanks to Matthew Goodness, the new physical education teacher at the Washburn Elementary and Middle Schools.
