Supt. Pratt has announced a two-hour delay for Tuesday, Jan. 22nd. Students may be dropped off starting at 10 AM and line-up is at 10:18. I am waiting to hear back from Okemo about logistics for our trip with the group of 27 students for pass pictures and boot fitting. We will need lunches and a bus rescheduled but hope to get it completed.
Due to icy road conditions, schools are closed in our supervisory union today. We will miss the first day of ice skating for Kindergarten. Wednesday, Jan. 16th, will be their first skating day. Be safe and warm today! The last day of school moves to Thursday, June 13th.
Our students in grades 1, 2, 3 and 4 had a wonderful time skating at Vermont Academy or swimming at the Edgar May pool on Tuesday morning. Our grade 4 students were wonderful role models and very helpful with our younger students. Nice way to Scatter Kindness!
The scramble has been on to fit skates and helmets to students and to have all required waivers for our swimmers. We are just about all set!
On Tuesday morning, we anticipate sending 39 swimmers to Edgar May and 36 skaters to Vermont Academy. Our 17 kindergarten students will skate on Wednesday morning.
Okemo does not open to schools until Jan. 29th yet our team of adults attended safety training on the mountain this past weekend.
Let’s have fun!
Our wonderful plans for pajama day and traveling to the Opera House to see The Muppets Christmas Movie are canceled. All schools are closed in the Windham Northeast Supervisory Union this morning.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts and memories of the Okemo Winter Sports program.
I believe you were given misinformation based on some social media posting. We are continuing to have a Winter Sports program at SRES and using the long-standing January until February winter recess time calendar for Winter Sports. The 75 students in grades 1-4 took a survey home in November while we waited to hear information from Vail, the new owners of Okemo. Only 21 students showed an interest in the ski program while both ice skating and swimming had more interest by our pupils.
The Rockingham schools have a Sunday ski program. This year the program will allow the students to ski from late January through the end of March. That way, students will have the opportunity to grow through skiing and also experience five opportunities to free swim or take swim lessons or go skating with lots of members of our school community. We are looking to provide lots of Winter Sports experiences for local kids.
I have a ski pass to Okemo as my husband teaches part-time in the ski school. I am a Sunday skier and look forward to seeing our students who want to participate in that program on the mountain. We have enjoyed knowing the Mueller family for many years and appreciate how wonderful they have been to all of Vermont’s school children in providing the opportunity for many to learn to ski.
Thank you for reaching out and trying to understand the opportunities being provided to Saxtons River students. I appreciate the chance to correct misunderstandings.
The White Elephant Sale will occur on Friday, Dec. 14th. Volunteers are needed to help set up after school on Wednesday, Dec. 12th. This is in place of the PTO meeting.
Roller Skating will not take place in December due to no transportation available for the skates.
Early release day on Dec. 21st. School closes at 11:45 for students and lunches are served.
