Grade 5

Week of January 13th – 17th

Hi Grade 5 Families!

We had a wonderful first trip up to Grouse! Our beginners eager and ready to learn with their first skiing lesson and our more seasons friends were happy to have another opportunity to hit the slopes! Hopefully we’re blessed with more clear weather for this week’s trip!

This week’s feature image is from our Grouse Trip – while waiting to ride the gondola with the Grade 6s! They were all very curious to know if we would all be able to fit on the gondola 😄 and extra thanks to the parents who were able to join us!
