If you have a child that is in the fifth or sixth grade, he or she is eligible for a free ski pass to any ski area in Idaho or eastern Oregon. To sign up for the free pass, please go to skiidaho.us.
The first nine weeks will end on Thursday of this week. You should be receiving a call from a teacher within the next week or so to schedule a parent-teacher conference. Conferences are scheduled for next week.
In visiting classrooms, we have some good learning happening. For example, in seventh and eighth grade English, students are learning about homonyms – which word should I use when I do well on an examination, passed or past?
