Whistler Trip Update

In exactly one month, Mini School students will probably get to do this:

There is nothing more beautiful than a sunny day on the slopes

We hope you all received the email home informing our students and parents of the recent change in our Whistler dates to Wednesday, December 7 – Thursday, December 8, 2011.

Thank you for bearing with us as we made these new arrangements.  Here is some important information to keep in mind as you prepare for the trip:

  • We will be meeting at the school on Wednesday, December 7th at 5:30 am.  Please arrange for a drop off by a parent or carpool.
  • All students must be equipped with a proper ski or snowboarding helmet while on the slopes.  These can be purchased at specialty sports stores or at Costco.
  • Students will be taking home notices and waivers later this week.  They will be selecting their appropriate level of instruction at this time.  All students will be placed into a group under the supervision of a certified ski/board instructor.  Students must stay with their groups at all times and may not go off on their own.
  • Check the current Whistler equipment list (found on the blogroll of this site).  Purchase or borrow equipment in the coming weeks.
  • We will be returning to the school on Thursday, December 8th around 7:00 pm.  Please arrange for a prompt pick-up.
  • All students and staff are expected to attend school as usual on Friday, December 9th.
Since our trip falls on the same week as the Mini School potluck, we have decided to postpone our potluck this year.  It will most likely be pushed back one week to Tuesday, December 13, 2011.  More information will be posted about the potluck as it becomes available.
Thank you very much to Mr. Leif Haensel and Mrs. Natasha Blair for their hard work in making our Whistler trip happen!  We are looking forward to an unforgettable time on the slopes.
Please contact myself sgin@sd38.bc.ca or Mr. Haensel lhaensel@sd38.bc.ca if you have questions about the trip.
