6th-grade packing list for Snow Mountain Ranch

Posted by Greg Chalfin on 3/4/2019

Hope you’re well and are having a great start to the week! 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.   

Below, you'll find our packing list for the trip. The temperature is forecast to be snowy in Granby, but much warmer than it would have been a month ago with temperatures in the mid to high 30s and low 40s. 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.

Required Supplies:

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

2 t-shirts

1 sun screen

1 toothbrush and toothpaste

2 water bottles

1 sack lunch for first day

School appropriate pajamas

Small backpack

Optional

Camera

Book

Cards

Journal

Not allowed

iPod, cell phone, and other electronics

Students should plan for a normal arrival to school on Thursday. After some final trip preparations with the 6th grade team, students will watch the 8th grade musical and then depart for Snow Mountain Ranch at approximately 11:15 am. They should be sure to pack a lunch with them for that day to eat on the bus or in the cars of parent drivers. We will return between 2:30 and 3 pm on Friday.

Enjoy the rest of your week, and looking forward to the trip!
