Highland Elementary staff members coordinate a trip on certain weekday evenings in January and/or February to a local ski establishment. The intent of the trip is for students to gain exposure, experience, and confidence in an activity not usually found at school. Skiing is not arisk-free sport, but can be safe if one learns how to be responsible.
Each night of the Ski Club includes transportation to and from Highland, equipment rental, a lift ticket and a 90-minute lesson with a group of skiers at their level. Staff and students who have participated have had wonderful experiences!
