CLARK, NJ -- Mother Seton Regional High School freshmen and sophomores attended the annual Ice Skating Trip at Roosevelt Park in Edison, NJ on Thursday, Feb. 2.  The students had the entire rink to themselves as they skated along to some of their favorite songs on the loud speaker.  

Organizers of the trip include: Maria Buontempo, French and Latin teacher, John Uriarte, religion teacher, Kevin R.J. Downey, Religion teacher, Michael Gagliardi, Social Studies teacher, Thomas Moran, science teacher, and Christine Danelson, school social worker.  Mr. Gagliardi, Mr. Moran, and Miss Danelson even graced the ice with their own ice skating talents.

"The ice skating trip is a wonderful opportunity for the two classes to be able to socialize with each other," Miss Danelson said.  "They already have some friendship between class levels because of the Big Sister/Little Sister Program and this afternoon of fun really adds to that."
