Second Grade Skiing Lessons

Nubs Nob 2014-15

Dear Parents:

The time has come to prepare for our elementary skiing lessons. The downhill skiing experience is part of our physical education curriculum and only provided in the second grade. This is an excellent opportunity for our kids to take part in a new outdoor activity that is so much a part of our area.

This year our lessons will be held at Nub's Nob. There is no cost to our students because Nub's Nob is generously donating their facilities, instructors, and the students' ski equipment.

Historically our ski instruction has alternated each year between Nub's and Boyne. This year we will be reinstating that cycle with our trip to Nub's Nob


The bus will leave Blackbird Elementary bus loop at 8:20 AM and arrive back at school by 11:00 AM. Lessons will be from 9:30-10:30 followed by free skiing.

Students were pre-measured for rental gear so it will be waiting for them at the ski hill. Students wishing to use their own equipment may do so. Equipment must be dropped off at your child's classroom each morning.

Please sign and return the attached Nub's Nob Release Form. Students will not be able to participate unless this form has been returned.


You do not need to be a skier to help us.

Volunteers are welcome to help chaperone the bus ride, help students with equipment, or supervise a lesson / free ski. If you are interested in volunteering please contact the classroom teacher and send in an additional release for yourself. Please note any volunteer must be on our approved volunteer list for the 2014-15 school year. Please contact Mrs. Wagner for verification.

Volunteers rentals and ski passes are covered!
