Our inaugural year is almost here! We have some amazing adventures planned for the 2012-2013 school year. Please check back regularly as we update this website. Make sure you RSS this blog feed. You can also follow us on Twitter by clicking on the twitter icon at the top right of this page. In conjunction with the RSS feed for the page, we plan on using twitter, facebook, and email to update parents. You can follow our twitter feed personally or just check the feed on the home page of this website.
We have attached our personal supply list to this post. You can also find the list under the documents tab of this website. We will be teaching students about this personal supply list during the first two weeks of school. Please try to have all personal supplies purchased before the middle of September. If buying warm-when-wet style outdoor clothing is new to you, we recommend starting at a store that specializes in outdoor gear and clothing, such as Valhalla Pure in Abbotsford, Mountain Equipment Co-op, or Vedder Field Supplies. (A new outdoor store will be opening shortly on Vedder Road where Peggy’s Donair used to be.)
Great deals can also be found on-line if you know what you are looking for: check out www.backcountry.com , www.o2gearshop.com , www.geartrade.com , www.rei.com/outlet and www.rei.com . Mountain Equipment Co-op also has a great on-line ordering system, often with free shipping, at www.mec.ca .
Shipping orders from the U.S. to a U.S. address in Sumas Washington is a great way to save on shipping. Pic It Up In Sumas ( www.picitupinsumas.com ) or Ship Happens ( www.myshiphappens.com ) provide these services.
Integrating technology and academic subjects within the planned activities is going to be fun. A list of planned Outdoor Education and PE activities has been posted under the activities tab and tentative dates have been posted under the calendar tab.
We cannot wait to begin!
