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 Thursday, on 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.
