IN THE SPIRIT OF GIVING
The Giving Tree at KES is ready for decorating! New hats, mittens,
scarves, and socks traditionally adorn the tree. All contributions
go the Rutland Women's Shelter before the holiday break, Dec. 24 -
Jan. 1. Please bring your contribution, and hang it on the
KES HOLIDAY STORE
Once again, the KES 3rd grade will create a holiday store in their
coatroom for all KES students to shop and purchase gifts ( all
under $1) for family and friends. The KES merchants are looking
forward to setting up their store with your donations of like-new
scarves, jewelry, knick-knacks, and other valuables. Also needed is
wrapping paper for the wrapping table outside the Holiday Store!
Please, no scented merchandise or well-loved stuffed animals.
Donations are being accepted daily until Dec. 13. Store hours
will be during snack time (10 a.m.) and recess (12:30 p.m.) Monday,
Dec. 17, Tues., Dec. 18, and Wed., Dec. 19th. Send your children
with small change during these days as this is a well-loved event
here at KES.
Registration forms went home last week with all KES students for
this season's Trailblazer program. The success of the nine-week
program, which begins Jan. 10 and ends March 14, depends upon
volunteers both on the hill and off. Younger students need help
getting dressed here at school before boarding the bus, never-ever
skiers need help on the magic carpet, base lodge chaperones man the
KES area at Ramshead, and of course we need volunteer coaches for
the ski/ride groups.
Please contact Kim Gaines at email@example.com to get on
board as a volunteer ensuring the continuation of this wonderful
