Hope you’re well and are having a great weekend! The 6th grade team and I are looking forward to our class trip to Snow Mountain Ranch this Thursday and Friday. I know it will be a fun, educational winter excursion for our students and a great opportunity for this amazing group to come together as a class.
The 6th grade team reviewed trip details and the packing list below with students on Friday, and I wanted you to have a copy as well. The temperature is forecast to be cold in Granby during the time we’re there with temperatures projected in the 20s. Please be sure your child has enough warm and dry clothing with them, as we will be outside for much of Thursday afternoon and Friday morning.
1 winter jacket
1 pair of boots or shoes appropriate to being in snow
1 pair snow pants
1 winter hat
1 pair waterproof gloves
1-2 pair polypropylene long underwear (top & bottom)
1 sweater (wool) or fleece – please no cotton hoodies!
2-3 pairs wool socks (or polypropolene)
2 pairs underwear
1 pair indoor shoes
1 long sleeve shirt
1 sun screen
1 toothbrush and toothpaste
2 water bottles
1 sack lunch for first day
School appropriate pajamas
iPod, cell phone, and other electronics
Food (besides packed lunch for Thursday)
Additionally, I will be out at an accreditation visit for another school on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week and may not be able to respond to inquiries quickly on those days. If questions arise about the trip or your child can no longer go, please be sure you reach out to Julie Daughtry, 6th grade Grade Level head, or any member of the 6th grade team, and they will be able to help you out.
Students should plan for a normal arrival to school on Thursday. After some final trip preparations with the 6th grade team, students will depart for Snow Mountain Ranch at 9:30 am. They should be sure to pack a lunch with them for that day. We will return between 2:30 and 3 pm on Friday.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend, and looking forward to the trip!
