We will be doing 5 days of cross country skiing over the next two months. This will be our major PE unit over this time. We will be doing this at Manning Park. Please see the calendar for dates and times. The first three trips are early starts, and the last two arrive home a bit after school. I sent home a parent consent form for this before Christmas but I forgot to attach the Manning Park Registration Form. Please find both forms attached below. I will have a meeting for OEA students on Monday to explain this form and give out a copy. I must get these completed forms back at the start of Tuesday's class.
Thank you to all who have said they can help with a truck or sorting for the bottle drive on January 18. Hopefully all students have now distributed flyers in their neighbourhoods. We will be distributing flyers in a few neighbourhoods near the school during Tuesday's PE class. Remember, we will be meeting at the front entrance of VMS at 9:30 am on January 18.
The trip to the Bowron Lakes is coming together. We now have official permission from the School District and we have booked our trip with the Provincial Park. We will begin canoeing at Cultus Lake for PE in April to prepare ourselves for this trip.
Snowshoe Trips and Winter Campout
Please note in the Calendar that we have snowshoeing trips scheduled for February 6 and February 17. We also have a two night winter campout scheduled for February 26-28. Please begin looking at your calendars in anticipation of this. All of these trips will take place in Manning Park, where generally better snow conditions will exist. We will always take the upcoming weather forecast into consideration before these trips.
Thank you everyone. It has been a great year so far. We hope you had a nice Christmas break and look forward to a busy rest of the year in the OEA.
