Winter Sports Season is Around the Corner!

Dear MCS Families, 

As many of you know, Montessori Community School partners with a ski resort each year to provide our students with a region specific experience of ski and snowboard lessons. This opportunity is open to all of our Kindergarten students and up. If you are unsure as to whether your student is signed up, please contact Ashlee Haslam, in the office. Please mark your calendars, as the Winter Sports Parent Meeting will take place Wednesday, November 16th from 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm. 

This year, our Winter Sports Program will take place at Snowbird. It is recommended that you start looking into and booking rentals, if needed, for your student.Snowbird does NOT have rentals for our students on location. Your student must have the following items each week:

Ski/ Board Boots (ensure both boots are the same size and fit properly)
Skis- matching
Snowboard (only 8 years old +)
Helmet
Goggles
Waterproof Gloves, Coat, and Pants
Neck Gaiters

Please ensure ALL ITEMS ARE CLEARLY LABLED.

Also, for our 5th and 6th grade students, please see here to find out more information about the Ski Utah Passport for some extra fun, practice, and savings.

Some rental places to check out are Christy Sports, Ski N'See, AJ Motion, Canyon Sports, and REI.
