ROCKFORD (WIFR) – With the snow taking a break today, some Stateline students got the opportunity to head outside and take in a breath of fresh air.

Students at Cathedral of Saint Peter’s School are taking recess outside in their new snow shoes. With grants and donations, the school was able to purchase 55 pairs of shoes. This winter, 8th graders were able to play basketball and football with a new kind of challenge.

"Most people they didn't really want to do it and now they kind of have fun with it playing sports and stuff. They noticed it's different, no one's ever done it here,” said student Tanner Nunez.

Physical Education teacher Yan Bionca says he wants to get his students outside to enjoy the elements and not always be cooped up during the winter.
