Elementary Activities:

The Elementary activities for the winter term are winding down as we head into March Break. This week:Lower Elementary: both Lower Elementary classes will be skating at Grightmire Arena on Friday this week. This is the last week of skating.As always,

  • When your child is skating, please ensure that their skates and helmet are in a bag that they can easily carry to and from the rink, and that skates are properly laced and easy for them to put on themselves. Please also note that the rink requires they wear a CSA approved helmet (look for the CSA sticker; they don’t deny kids with them, but they do frown and grumble a bit about children skating in bike helmets). A water bottle is great idea too. We can always use some extra hands to help get skates tied up, and parents are welcome to skate with us. Children will be at the rink by about 1:45 and will skate until 3:00.

Upper Elementary:Next week, on Friday, March 11skiing at Chicopee
