One more trip...and we get an extra hour!

Great skiing and boarding this past week; the temps were perfect and the conditions were great.  I can't believe that we had our first trip five weeks ago already and we only have one more to go.  Speaking of that one more trip, I'm sure the students already created the buzz so I'll verify the good news: we did get the green light from the bus, the mountain, and of course our principal to leave an hour early for the mountain this Friday!  I'll be putting together permission forms for parents tomorrow.  There will be an announcement at 1:00 pm on Friday during D Block for dismissal.  All students will report to the tv studio at that time.  STUDENTS SHOULD REPORT TO THEIR D BLOCK CLASS.  We will leave promptly for the mountain at that time and arrival back to school will not change.

The Ground Hog Says "Keep On Skiing"!

That's right, we've got 6 more weeks of winter if you believe in that sort of thing.  I'll buy into it just to say we have plenty of time left to hit the slopes.  Unfortunately, one thing we don't have much left are trips to Wachusett.  Only two left so lets make the most of them!

While last Friday was a cold one, we did have the mountain to ourselves.  There were hardly any lines at the lift and it was a lot easier to find a seat at the lodge.  The chaperons and I took notice of the breaks that the kids took to warm themselves up, nice job everyone.  I'd like to hear everyone's thoughts on dealing with the extra cold last week so feel free to comment.

One last thing: the tip for the driver has been much better the past two weeks...the driver thanks you!

Oh, one more last thing!  How about a photo?
