Spring Camp Parent Meeting

Hello Students and Parents,

As per our grade wide calendar, our Rocky Mountain Tour Parent Meeting is next week on Thursday, April 18th at 18:30 in our IAC.  All parents are invited to attend as useful information will be given, such as (but not limited to):
-trip overview
-packing list
-a review of mountain weather
-a review of behaviour in national parks and general public areas
-a review on wildlife concerns
-acceptable and non-acceptable items to bring
-menu overview
-a description of our accommodations and amenities
-curricular objectives
-information for parent volunteers
-safety and emergency plans
-how you can contact us

This will also be the unveiling of our much anticipated camp booklet.  If you are unable to attend, these will be given to students after specific instructions are given to them.  There are many safety aspects when going on a multi-day trip such as this, and it is important that this information is relayed to parents and students alike. All forms (Health form, Informed consent, and whitewater rafting waiver) are due April 26th. This is important as our coordinators for whitewater rafting need this faxed in to be processed well before our excursion.

We hope to see you on April 18th at 18:30,

Your grade 8 team
