Dear Parents,

Ski Trip – Tomorrow – Grades 4-12

Please be reminded that the Ski Trip to Highlands Nordic for grades 4-12 will take place tomorrow, Friday, February 21st. We will leave school at 9:00am sharp so please arrive on time. We will be back around 5:00pm. Public Skating which was originally booked for this day is moved to February 28th. Students who don’t attend this trip can come to school but there will be no regular classes.

Grades 1-2-3 : will have regular classes.

Please bring with you the following:

The weather is expected to be around 0 degrees. Please dress in layers. Wear a sport jacket (not too heavy as kids tend to sweat when skiing)

Snow pants


Hat (the UMCA hat is perfect!)

Waterproof gloves


Water bottle

Lunch + snacks

Clothes to change in case you get wet (especially socks and t-shirts as kids tend to sweat while skiing)

We will provide hot chocolate and grilled cheese sandwich, but you can bring money to purchase additional food if you wish.

Please contact us if you have any questions.

Picture Day – Important! Don’t Miss the Day!

On Monday, February 24th, we will have picture day. Please come wearing your blue UMCA sweatshirt. Please don’t miss this day as there will be no re-take of photos.
