Starting in January, fourth
and fifth grade students who have signed up and paid can go skiing at
Tussey Mountain. This program
lasts for 4 to 6 weeks. Students are transported to Tussey Mountain by
a SCASD school bus and parents have to pick them up by 7 PM. On
November 15th, there is an Elementary Intramural ski meeting in room
230 at 7:00 PM in the SCAHS South Building. This is the only intramural
activity that students have to pay for. Parents can ski with their
children for the same group discount. If you want to ski, please
contact me in order to get a parent discount coupon. Students owning
their own skis can bring them to school in the morning. Some parents
opt to take their children or carpool a group of children out to Tussey
Mountain instead of having them take a bus. This is fine as long as
they have signed up at the school office so someone knows that they are
with our group.
Besides skiing, fourth and fifth graders can
participate in volleyball. We will be playing volleyball twice a week.
Fourth graders can participate until the end of February. Fifth graders
will continue to practice until the March tournament.
Winners from the fall basketball hoop shoot practice can participate in
the Elks Club Hoop Shoot Contest at Mount Nittany Middle School on a
Saturday morning in January. If anyone wins in their age category at
the Elk's Club Hoop Shoot, they may eligible to continue to compete. It
will be the parent's responsibility to take their child to the Hoop
Shoot and stay while their child is participating. Participants who go
to the Elk's Club will receive a free basketball tee shirt.
If you have any questions
about these winter activities, you can call Mrs. Esther Cordell at school.
