Birdlebough Students Make History During Physical Education Class


History was recently made during a physical education class at John C. Birdlebough High School, as a select group of students braved bitter cold temperatures and steady snow fall to become the first to participate in a snowshoeing exercise.

A select group of students at JCB recently made history as they became the first students to exercise with snowshoes during a physical education class. From left, students Brianna Luke, Allie Williams, Ashley Johnson, Natalie Hart and Catherine Musumeci pose with their snowshoes.

This is the first year snowshoeing has been offered to high school students, and physical education teacher Angela Neiss believes snowshoeing provides students with a great outdoor activity during central New York’s long, harsh winters.

“It’s great to be able to introduce our students to outdoor activities to encourage them to get outside, enjoy what CNY has to offer, and most importantly, to exercise,” said Neiss.

Neiss said the weather had been too cold to venture outside, but on Jan. 30 the conditions were just right for a snowshoeing exercise.
