A Note From The Middle School...


Jiminy Peak Ski Trip, New Date: Saturday Jan. 26, 2019


The Jiminy Peak Ski Trip is a middle school favorite! Hopefully your middle schooler might be interested in going. We work with Island Ski Tours who arranges the bus, lessons, rentals and the hospitality room just for FA in the Jiminy Lodge where the skiers are welcomed with donuts and hot chocolate.  I will be chaperoning this trip along with several other middle school teachers. Beginners to advanced skiers are invited. Rentals and lessons are available for those who would need them.  (Students have received a GoogleDoc from me where they can put their name if they are going on the trip, indicate their skiing ability and connect with others in their level.)



We must have a minimum of 30 students for this trip to run!

Don't wait to sign up!
