As a community, we were so excited to continue our tradition of snowshoeing and cross-country skiing trips this winter. And with the help of parent and guardian volunteers, these trips were a success!
In most years, 6th graders have built their own snowshoes and tested them on these trips. However, this year’s 6th graders used “commercially built” snow-shoes. They were a little sad that they couldn’t build their own, but they were excited. When I asked them about their trips, they told me about digging snow igloos, sliding down hills, and trekking really far! One 6th grader admitted she was scared to try snowshoeing for the first time, but by the end of the 2 weeks, she was proud to make it up a steep hill. Thanks to our extensive gear library, we are able to offer everything kids need to participate in these trips as part of our tuition. Additionally, some families are borrowing cross-country skis and snowshoes to try out their new skills over midwinter break!
