I just wanted to remind everyone that on Monday, January 30th at 7:00p.m. in the NewBrook School gymnasium there will be a public informational meeting regarding the school budget. The purpose of this meeting is to give the public the opportunity to ask me and the Board questions about the proposed 2012-2013 budget.

Hello Skiers and Boarders!
It looks like we are finally going to be able to get going with our winter sports program.
If you skied last year please remember to bring your ski pass. It has been reactivated. If you need a new one you will need to go to the ticket office as soon as you get to the mountain.
Students will be excused at 11:15 with the bus departing by 11:30. Anyone, this includes adults, is welcome to ride the bus. We will be meeting on the lower level of the base lodge(across from the bathrooms) at 12:30 to quickly review rules and procedures and to go over groupings. All NewBrook Student and Adult JISP participants need to be at this short meeting.
While it is our goal to make this winter sports experience fun and rewarding the safety and accountability of our students is this program’s 1st priority. All Chaperons and Instructors are committed to supporting NewBrook students from 12:30 to 3:30. This includes not only instruction time but also free ski time.
Remember come prepared. It is better to have too much to wear than too little. It would be great if Adults could if at all possible pack extra gators, goggles, socks, mittens, hats.
Look forward to seeing you at the mountain!
