Almost vacation time! Let's talk about Friday's.
It's hard to believe that we are already approaching the holidays and of course, Christmas break! We'll be hitting the slopes in 2 weeks from this Friday but let's enjoy some time off first. I had a meeting on Monday and while most of the club showed up, some students had other obligations that day so let's play catch-up. Students that are taking their own equipment to the mountain should be coming by to drop off everything at the TV Studio as soon as they get to school. I'll have a portion of the room upstairs cleared out just for your gear. My students (in class that day) will not have access to this area and the room is already locked at all times if I'm not in there. I'll be in by 7am so give yourself enough time to drop off the equipment and get to your Power Block on time. I will not be issuing late passes! The halls are tight so as you walk through with your skis and boards, please be careful not to whack anyone on your way by. At 2:05, get down to the studio, get your equipment and get on the bus! The bus will be parked outside the studio parking lot and the sooner we leave, the more runs we get in. If you have school-related bags, books, etc., you have two choices: bring it on the bus if you plan on doing schoolwork and leave it on the bus when we get to the mountain OR leave it in my classroom (TV Studio) and you can get it when we come back to school. We WILL NOT be able to access the rest of the school building outside of my room so what ever you need for schoolwork for the weekend, don't forget it at 2:05. We have to leave the mountain by 8:30 pm per contract with the bus so we should be back to school just before 10:00 pm. We will be in the same parking we left from - if the school is on your left, it is the first parking lot just before the school. Students that need rides will be calling you when we are about 20 minutes from the school. Students that drive: I would advise parking in that lot on Friday's if you don't already - it will make your life easier later that night. That's about enough for tonight, next post will be all about what to wear, eating right, keeping buddies and above all, staying safe. Please feel free to comment to this post if you have any questions (parents and students of course) and if you haven't subscribed to the blog, go ahead and do that if you'd like. If I don't post again before Christmas, I wish everyone a Merry!
