Skateboarding and ScooteringRoxy McKnightThis class is an opportunity for students to express themselves through movement and technique at the Durango Skate Park. Students must have their own skateboard and helmet (non-negotiable). A strong sense of student ownership and responsibility is imperative for this class to exist. Any violations as listed in the student handbook will justify immediate removal from this class. Skating is a privilege. Not a right.

“I feel like skateboarding is as much of a sport as a lifestyle, and an art form, so there's so much that that transcends in terms of music, fashion, and entertainment.” - Tony Hawk
Durango Skate Park$5--fee will appear on student account in Infinite Campus; students must have their own skateborad or scooter and helmet
