GIFT THANK YOU
All teachers would like to thank you for your thoughtful, generous holiday gifts. We were spoiled and felt very loved and appreciated. We always hope to thank each of you individually, but if we didn’t, thank you so much!
WINTER GEAR & LABELING BELONGINGS
Please consider a 30 minute recess each morning when packing your child’s snow bag, particularly their hats and gloves or mittens. We want students to be warm and toasty on these cold days. With all of the gear required for winter play, we are also asking you to please label your child’s belongings with marker or stickers with their names. Items are getting lost or accidentally swapped because students have the same boots, snow pants, mittens, etc. Thank you for your help with this!
SNOWSCAPES FIELD TRIP
All students will visit the Driggs City Center on January 17th from 9-10am to see the snow sculptures being carved and will get a chance to speak with the artists and see the process. Please dress students very warmly for this fun outing! Thank you.
Beginning on January 10th we will be headed to Grand Targhee to ski for the afternoon on the next six Fridays. We will leave the school at 12:00 pm and will return by 4:30 pm (usually closer to 4:15). Chaperones who are at the ski hill should meet your child in front of ski school at 3:30pm to pick them up from their lessons. K-8 Students must bring all ski clothing and gear with them to school in the morning – a snack and water bottle are also recommended. Again, please label all of your child’s belongings! All TK and preschool students must be accompanied by a chaperone. Those in preschool who are not attending will have class as scheduled, any students in grades K-8 who are not attending must be picked up by 12:00 on ski days. Thank you!
FEBRUARY WINTER SPORTS – ICE SKATING
Students will visit Kotler Ice Arena to skate on February 21st and February 28th from 10-11:30am. This program is for students in grades TK-7 only. The cost is $5/session per student. This includes rentals, if needed. Students must have a helmet.
