AJA High School students gathered at Atlantic Station on Wednesday evening, December 16, to participate in an ice skating Chanukah event run by STUCO. Students had the opportunity to skate and enjoy hot cocoa and sufganiyot.
Senior STUCO cabinet member Noah Chen explained, “We decided to have this event because we thought we needed something to get everyone out and having fun again.” He elaborated that ice skating is conducive to social distancing, and the outdoor rink was similarly COVID friendly, which allowed students to feel “like things were almost back to normal.”
Junior Kiki Starr felt that this event was “a way [for students] to bond during these times” while staying safe. Yael Mainzer, a freshman, agreed, saying, “I thought it was a nice activity that was COVID-safe and fun at the same time.”
