Skating At Pocomoke Middle School


POCOMOKE CITY, Md. –  A new synthetic ice rink has been installed at Pocomoke Middle School.

Worcester County recently bought this new portable ice rink.

It is going to be moved all around the county, but right now it is inside the Pocomoke Middle school for students to enjoy.

The rink was installed in the school just a few days ago.

School Principal Matthew Record says the rink is a chance for students to be more active and take away some new life lessons.

“It’s a great opportunity for students to understand that even in life when you fall down, you have to get back up and ice skating is the same way and I will also tell you it’s a great health and wellness activity,” said Record.

We are told the ice rink will likely be moved to the town of Berlin within the next few weeks for more people to enjoy.
