Skiers took off on Friday at 1:30 for an afternoon at Jiminy Peak for instruction and free-skiing in beautiful weather. Ice skaters had an hour at the rink at Hudson Valley, and kids in Dance Moves class perfected their electric slide, then had a presentation about blue bird houses from our Master Gardeners.
This Friday will be the last "Winter Friday." I think that teachers will be glad to get back to a routine that doesn't include taking off on wild adventures on Friday afternoons. The kids sure had fun! And there is no way we could pull off this program without the help of our parents who drive and chaperone - Thank you to all for making this unique way for Parker kids to have new experiences together and to ward off the winter blahs a big success!
A few more ways we'll be mixing things up are Read Across America Day on March 6 and Pi Day (3.14159) on March 14 at 1:59 PM.
