The BIG 5

Thank you for sending your student to school with the big 5 (boots, snow pants, jacket, hat, gloves) every day and for taking home and drying their snow clothing each night before returning it the next day. Thank you!

Winter Break
Our Winter Break will be December 21 – January 1. School will release on December 18th at 3:00 pm and students will return to school on Monday, January 4th. There will be no aftercare on Friday, December 18th. Have a wonderful holiday!

Winter Sports Program – Parent Drivers Needed!
Attached please find information regarding our winter sports program. We will begin going to Grand Targhee to ski on Friday afternoons beginning January 8th. This program is for ages 4 and up only and all students in Preschool or Transitional Kindergarten must be accompanied by a parent (preschool students who do not attend on Fridays are welcome to meet us there with a parent).

We will not be using the school bus to transport students to/from the resort this year. If you are able to transport your own children or are willing to transport others in your child’s class, please let us know as soon as possible. We feel confident that we can make this work safely and effectively, but in the event that we are short on drivers, we will be unable to participate in the program this year.

Preschool/TK students who do not participate will have regularly scheduled classes on Fridays, however those in K-8th grades who choose not to attend will need to be picked up from school at 12:00 on ski days. All registration and payments will be done online this year directly through Grand Targhee – this link is not yet available, but we will send it as soon as we have it.

Secret Santa Gift Exchange & Pajama Day
Friday, December 18th is pajama day and we will do a small gift exchange. K-8th grade students will come home with the name of a student to purchase a gift for. Preschool students may bring a wrapped gift for a child of the same gender or something gender neutral. Please limit spending to $10 or less. Thank you for participating in this fun event. The kids love it so much! Gift ideas include: art supplies, games, books or small toys – please try to avoid candy or other “treats”.
