Hi Dover School Ski Folk,

I hope everyone is getting excited about skiing! The kids' ski passes should be in the mail to you this week (PLEASE send forms to Mt. Snow if you haven't, get gear worked out, etc. ;->>), the mountain is getting snowy, and January will be here before we know it...

A great opportunity to get in the mood is coming up a week from Thursdayon 12/15 -- Jaime Alvarez (Skyler's mom) has been amazing in bringing a "Backcountry Film Festival" fundraiser to the Snow Barn. This event will raise scholarship funds for the ski program. We were able to help many families this year and now it's time to re-fill the kitty for next year!

All the information about the event is here: http://www.mountsnow.com/events/calendar/backcountry-film-festival/

But the skinny is: pay $10 at the door (all door proceeds go to the scholarship fund!), and then hang out, order half price pizza for you and the kiddos, and watch the show -- pilots from 7 Backcountry films that will be released in 2017. This is a totally family-friendly event! There will be a raffle with some great prizes, so it promises to be a fun night.

The Snow Barn is also allowing us to do a bake sale (I know my kids will be happy to get a treat after pizza!!). We are looking for people who can help man the table and/or send in baked goods. If you can't make the event, you can drop baked goods at school on Weds 12/14 or Thurs 12/15 and Jaime will pick them up and bring them to the Snow Barn. Please let me know if you can help with baked goods!! All are much appreciated. There is also a signup sheet at school by Lori's office (it's on the far left).

Hope to see many faces at the Snow Barn next week! It's a great way to get together while raising money that helps all Dover School kids be able to ski.

Thinking snow,

Meg Staloff

Halloween Festival 
Friday October 28

This year, we have exciting new changes to our annual Halloween celebration!  Students, parents, grandparents and caregivers are all invited to the Dover School for an evening of fun, food, and laughter!  We will start out in the school parking lot for our beloved “Trunk or Treat”.  Children and parents alike are encouraged to dress up in your best Halloween costume while you go from car to car collecting treats!  This year we are having a real-life CLUE game during this event so be sure to spend some time talking to your neighbors and looking for clues!  Show your Halloween Spirit by decorating your vehicle or trunk!  Prizes will be awarded for the following categories this year:
Best Dressed vehicle (or trunk)                    Prettiest Costume
Funniest Costume                                           Spookiest Costume
Most Creative Costume                                  Best Dressed Visitor (new this year!)
Best Over-All Costume- EVERYONE gets to vote on this one so be on the lookout for your favorite!

After the Trunk or Treat event, we are keeping the party going inside!  Join us for a neighborhood Pot Luck Supper of finger foods and fall treats!  We will be serving warm apple cider as well.  In this packet please find the sign-up sheet and tell us what you would like to bring!  There will be fun games and crafts going on to keep the kids busy while the parents take it all in.  Please bring in your carved pumpkins for us to light up the walkways with your works of art!  Also new this year, we will have a cool picture station where you get to make memories in your amazing costumes in front of our “green screen”.  We can then super-impose spooky backgrounds for that perfect Halloween look!  There will be a small fee for the pictures and proceeds will go to the Dover School Club.  If you would like to help with the games, crafts, photos or the cleanup, please contact us at: club@doverschool.net.

We hope you are as excited as we are!  We hope to get lots of participation!  Let’s make this event the start of another great tradition at the Dover School!
