Dear Parents,

The weather changes are a reminder to all of us to make sure everyone comes to school ready for outdoor activity as well as indoor.  Please make sure your child has the right weight jacket or coat for the day’s temperatures; a pair of gloves or mittens; a hat; and boots.  Later, when there is more snow on the ground, any student wanting to play in the snow will be required to have snow pants as well as boots, hat, mittens or gloves and jackets.  For their protection, we will not allow students to play outdoors if they do not have appropriate outerwear.  As with other items, please make a point of labeling each with your child’s initials or name so we can be sure to return it to the correct owner.

This January and February, we will be conducting our annual 5 Fridays of ski instruction at Sunapee, with an alternate program (LIFE) at the CCBA in Lebanon NH.  If you are interested in our ski program, our first sign up will be November 21st in the Cafeteria from 6:30 to 8:30 pm.  Our second signup will be held the evening of November 28.  If you cannot make it to one of these two evenings, please contact Dale Lawrence here at school, or Chet Newbold to get paperwork, which is due by December 15.  If you are interested in becoming a volunteer to help out with the program, please get in touch with Chet Newbold.

If you know that your child will not be participating in the ski program at Sunapee, the alternative is for students to engage in several activities at the Witherell Center in Lebanon, through the CCBA.  Students will receive instruction in swimming, martial arts and yoga, with additional time for free play.

We will need to know the numbers of participants for each of the two programs in order to coordinate bus transportation and chaperones, so please be sure to contact the school to indicate which program your child will be attending.
