Ski Club Update!!!

 Ski club is still accepting new members.

The club rides a bus to Greek Peak over the winter months on friday afternoons beginning in January.  Participants pay a fee directly to Greek Peak and a registration fee to Newfield Rec. to help offset transportation costs.  Meals are the responsibility of the participants but sandwiches are available to order from the Newfield School Cafeteria. Their annual wreath sale is ending today and if anyone would like a wreath, decorated or undecorated, you can contact Joyce Frank at .  You can also contact joyce, or Ed sawester ( ) for any further specifics.

Here’s is a note from our Ski club Advisor Joyce Frank:

I’ll be placing our wreath order tomorrow afternoon, so please get your info turned in by 3:30 to me by email or to Mr. Sawester by hard copy. I need # plain, # decorated and if you want them early or at the meeting. You can pay at pick up.

Please help! We are looking like we will be a very small club this year, with only 14 kids signed up so far. That is not sustainable for our bus costs to be covered so everyone’s help is important.

Thanks so much! See you soon – Movie Meeting and final sign ups and paperwork – Friday Dec. 4, after school in Mr. Sawester’s room, Middle School.


PS.  You must be registered with Greek Peak before Dec. 1 to get the complimentary back pack they are giving away this year.
