Ski Club General Information Form ~~~ 2017 Season

Advisor: Mrs. Proule  ~~~  Principal: Mr. Florence

 

The Raynham Middle School Ski Club has four day trips planned this winter.  Join in on the fun and excitement for one trip, two trips, three trips, or all four trips.  Any 5th, 6th, 7th, or 8th grade RMS students are invited to join, provided they meet eligibility standards as outlined in the agenda books (Student Activities Page).  Inexperienced students can take lessons on all four trips for additional cost.   Students can ski or snow board.  We hope this information answers questions about our one-day ski trips.

 

Experienced and inexperienced students are invited to join.  In order to go on a trip, we require that you take lessons on your first two trips, or, you need to sign the Registration (Form 1) stating that your child is an experienced skier/boarder and does not need lessons.

GENERAL INFORMATION

 

Lessons:  It is not necessary to have any previous skiing or snowboarding experience in order to participate.  Lessons are available on all four trips for an additional cost.   You need to register and pre-pay for lessons with your registration form.  Additional paperwork for lessons may be required by the resorts.  If this is the case, Mrs. Proule will be in touch with the parents before the trip to complete the forms.

 

Equipment Rental:  If you do not own equipment, you will have to make arrangements to rent equipment to bring with you.  Your equipment must include a helmet.  Crossed Sabers on Rt. 44 in Raynham has a rental program as well as other ski shops in the area.  You will not be allowed to rent equipment at the mountain.  If you forget your helmet, you will not be allowed to ski/board.

 

Cost:  The prices listed on the registration form include your lift ticket and luxury motor coach transportation.  

 

Other expenses:  Students will need to bring their own lunch, or have lunch and snack money with them.

Behavior:  Students on this trip represent Raynham Middle School.  Any student who is considered a potential behavior problem or safety risk (i.e. any student who has served at least one day of suspension, or who has served five or more office detentions) will not be allowed to come.  If any student is a behavior problem or behaves in an unsafe manner at any point during the trip, he/she may have to sit in the lodge, or his/her parents may be called and will need to travel to NH to pick him/her up.

 

What to Bring:  Pack a small backpack for the bus ride with something to eat on the bus for your breakfast, and you may want a snack or sandwich in your backpack for the bus ride home.  You can bring lunch and keep it in your duffel bag in the lodge.  Lunches tend to be expensive so plan accordingly.  Walkman-type radios and IPods are fine for the bus, portable DVD players, as long as they have ear phones.  “G” rated DVD's for the bus are welcomed.

 

Clothing:  Cold weather clothing for skiing.  Please be conservative with clothing, pack one bag only….you have to carry what you bring to the lodge.  Please leave expensive jewelry, cell phones, and large sums of cash at home.  Things tend to get lost, and your duffel bags will be left unattended in the lodge.  Duffel bags and equipment will be stored under the bus during the ride.  Please mark all your equipment and bags clearly with your name and our school name – masking tape with a Sharpie works great.  Remember rental equipment all looks the same so make sure your belongings are labeled.

 

Details:  We leave from RMS at 5:30 a.m. SHARP!  The bus arrives at 5:15 a.m. for boarding.  We will arrive at the mountains at approximately 8:00-8:30 a.m.  Chaperones will be at the mountain while students are skiing, but students do not ski with the chaperones, they will ski with their friends.  Students will have designated times that they must check in with Mrs. Proule during the day in the lodge.  We depart the mountain at a set time, which we will announce to the students before we get off the bus.  Students will know the pick up time in advance and we expect their ride to be waiting when we arrive back at RMS (approximately 7:00 p.m.).  Please provide Mrs. Proule with a home email address and before each trip, you and your child will receive a reminder itinerary.  Mrs. Proule will put her cell phone number on the itinerary, along with the name, address, and phone number of where we are going, and the bus company information.

 

Medication:  Please inform the trip leader and our school nurse if your son/daughter is on medication or has any other special medical needs.  The trip leader is not allowed to dispense any medication. 

 

Chaperones:  Mrs. Proule is the trip leader and will remain at the base lodge.  Chaperones will be on the slopes and in the lodge, and will not be skiing with the students.  Students will ski with their friends.  Teachers will have first choice of chaperoning.  Parents, if you are interested in chaperoning, please be sure to complete a CORI form as soon as possible.  The office needs to make a copy of your driver’s license to submit with your CORI form.   You need a new CORI for every school year.
