Dear Parent or Guardian,

Greetings! During the month of January starting on January 3rd, your child will be participating in snow shoeing during their physical education class. If the temperatures remain at a comfortable level and if we get enough snow our chances for a safe snow shoeing environment are promising. 

In order for students to have a safe and successful experience they must be dressed properly for snow shoeing. I strongly recommend that your child brings snow pants in case they fall or get wet. The following are ESSENTIAL: WINTER BOOTS, a hat, gloves or mittens, jacket, snow pants and light socks.

If your child is not prepared with the essential winter items then they can call a parent or guardian in the morning to see if they can bring them what they need. If the student cannot get the item they will stay in the office and read a book or do school work. Due to health issues, we will NOT be lending students hats, gloves, mittens, neck warmers, SNOW pants and coats. Please take the time over the next week to prepare your child for this outdoor winter activity.  While collecting the essential clothing needed please also help your child to work on tying their shoes.  The less time we take working on being able to independently tie their boots the more time we will have snow shoeing.

If we have limited snow or the conditions are unsafe we will be inside working on cup stacking.

Children are welcome to bring their own equipment.  They may store their snow shoes in our storage room. The students will make sure to bring their snow shoes home at the end of the week. Students are required to use the school’s poles since they have the necessary safety tips. 

If you would like to join your child’s class that would be great! An extra pair of hands is always welcome.  Students frequently need help with their equipment.  Please contact me at M.B.S. if you plan on helping.

If you have any questions or would like to come help out please feel free to email me at or call me at 264-5903.                                   

Thank you for your help,
