Skateboarding 101

The Apocolypse is surely upon us:

The kids at Douglass Elementary School already had a climbing wall and a zip line in their gymnasium. Then their P.E. teacher learned to skateboard.

So the students are taking up skateboarding too. It's the latest in a trend toward physical education that's fun and tempts kids into staying active outside of school and perhaps years later.

And for once, the expectation is that the kids don't shower after class. I imagine most teachers will be offering extra credit for big scabs and raspberries, too.
