THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
In the spirit of Thanksgiving, we are grateful for all the parents, faculty, and staff working so hard to “Make Journeys Possible”. We are half way through the 5 week Annual Campaign and we appreciate the support the Journeys School community is showing. If you haven’t given your gift yet this year, please consider donating online by clicking here.
The town bus route has a new stop at the base of the Snow King Arena. Please click here for the new bus schedule which will go into effect starting Monday, December 1, 2014. The only change is the addition of this stop. Please send questions or comments to firstname.lastname@example.org or feel free to call Tammie at (307) 734-3710. Also, a reminder that the winter season schedule for the Teton Valley START Bus begins November 28th. Please click here for that schedule, and please go to http://www.startbus.com/ to see all START Bus route schedules. (The Teton Valley route's schedule change will not affect the connection with Journeys School's Driver Provider bus.)
A number of students in grades 6-12 participate in ski/snowboard programs after school. In an effort to support these students, Journeys School offers a ski shuttle on Tuesdays and Thursdays leaving promptly at 3:00 pm from the Journeys School upper parking lot and arriving at Snow King at 3:15 pm. At this time, the shuttle is only for students in grades 6-12. Another option for transportation is the Driver Provider bus which leaves Journeys School at 3:35 pm and arrives at Snow King Center at 4:01 pm for later activities or for those who miss the shuttle, as well as for students in grades K-5 who are not eligible for the ski shuttle.
The shuttle service will begin Tuesday, December 2, 2014.
Help support Journeys School and the Annual Fund by purchasing your raffle tickets today! You can either purchase tickets online (click here) OR better yet, buy them from any Journeys School student. Last week every student went home with a raffle packet to sell to friends, family, neighbors etc. For every 10 raffle tickets a student sells they will get their name entered into the Stand Up Paddle Board Raffle drawing. For the younger kids, we really appreciate any support you can give them in helping to sell tickets.
Our three exciting raffles this year are:
• Two round trip airfares to anywhere in the Continental US for a Journeys School teacher
• A Starboard Converse Inflatable Stand Up Paddle Board generously donated by Rendezvous River Sports
• Early Tram Ride at JHMR for two, generously donated by Jackson Hole Mountain Resort
Shoes for PE Class - Grades K-10
For the next several weeks of school, students in grades K-10 will need a pair of athletic shoes (something other than boots and regular indoor shoes) for PE, which will be held in the Education Center for Fitnessgrams and our dance unit. Please send a pair of athletic shoes that your child can keep at school for PE. Thank you!
