We approved our 10th grant for the year! This one is going toward the 4th graders for their annual Ski Trip. They will travel to Detroit Lakes again in January.
Students will have the opportunity to be taught how to properly ski through a variety of learning methods and lessons. Once students have grasped the skills to safely operate throughout the mountain, they will ski on their own for the remainder of the day. Chaperones will also be on the mountain to help ensure the safety of the students.
The hope is for students to gain a greater appreciation for a recreational activity that is fun, unique, and once in a lifetime experience for some. Since Detroit Mountain is close by, hopefully they will take advantage of skiing at there in the future. Skiing is an activity that can be enjoyed throughout a person’s life. We hope to instill a love of this unique exercise that will stay with them into the future.
