Please read carefully:

 

Doug at the Roller Rink asked me to clarify the following on the skate passes:

 

The one you receive for reading 3 books will pay for your admission into the rink if you are a skater.  That means on Friday night it will save you $7 and on Sat/Sun it may save you $3 or $4.  You MUST be a skater to use the pass.  It will NOT cover your admission as a ‘non-skater’.  If you go to the rink planning on not skating on Friday night, it will still cost you $11 to get in.  Remember: Skate rental is $3 and blades are $4 or $5 depending on size.  Be sure to bring your money for your rental, along with your pass, and remember – you MUST plan on skating to use this coupon for admission.

 

The pass you receive for Spring Break (passed out during 6th hour) is only good for $1 off your admission on Wednesday of Spring Break.  It is a coupon to save $1 between the hours of 11am – 4 p.m. on Wednesday.  This coupon was not associated with March is Reading Month, rather it is just a coupon from Doug to help save you money at the rink!

In addition to the skating passes you earn at Stadium Roller Skate (Hillsdale), JMS students that read 5 books between 2/28 & 4/15 will also earn an UdderBuck ($1 off your order at UdderSide).  The following students need to see Mrs. Maddox (if you have not done so already) to receive your Skating Pass & your UdderBuck:
