2013 Stowe Mountain Ski and Ride Program Sign-Ups!  Time Sensitive! 

Interested in getting your child out onto the slopes of Stowe Mountain? We are offering the Stowe Ski and Ride program again this year to 3rd through 8th grade students. There will be a cap of 65 students for CBMS and it is first come, first serve.  Sign-ups begin Monday, October 15th and continue through the end of the day on Wednesday October 24th. To access the form, click here.  You can either send the form in with your child to school (deliver to the front office), or mail your sign up form to the school (CBMS, 5672 VT Route 100, Duxbury, VT  05676)  NO ELECTRONIC FORMS will be accepted. After we reach 65 students we will start a waiting list. If you send the form in with your child, please emphasize that he/she brings it in to the office as it is time sensitive.

After the list is firmed up we will then send out all the forms to fill out. The program this year will again cost around $90.00 per student and this pays for the pass and any and all program fees, including transportation. This fee does not pay for equipment. This is open to any and all students regardless of experience level, ability to pay, and/or physical disability.

This program will get your child up to the slopes for 8 Mondays starting January 7th and running through the end of March, weather dependent. It will also allow your child to ski/ride on Sundays and during February break.  Your child will be responsible for all classes missed, as we will be leaving school at 12:30pm and returning to Thatcher Brook for pick up between 5 and 5:30pm. If your child is interested please get your form in as soon as possible!  If you have any questions please email us at: skiandridevt@yahoo.com or call us at 244-1843.

Thank you!

Time to kick off Odyssey of the Mind!
Calling all returning OMers and anyone who might want to learn more about Odyssey of the Mind! OM is a fun, extra-curricular creative problem-solving activity that keeps students busy from fall until March at least. Crossett Brook has participated in the state and national OM competitions for many years. It’s time to figure out teams for this year – no experience necessary. OM teams typically have 5-7 student members and one or two volunteer coaches. OM is for creative students who like to design and build things; those who enjoy art, acting and maybe even singing; people who like working with a group and especially enjoy a challenge.
Anyone interested in being on a team, coaching a team, or just learning more so you can decide should come to a kickoff meeting Tuesday, October 23, 6:30-7:30 p.m. in the CBMS library.
            OM includes students from kindergarten through college. Hundreds of teams from the U.S. and many other countries take part in World Finals every year. They begin by choosing from a list of problems to solve, working during the school year on a solution, and presenting their solutions at state contests. Winners qualify to compete at World Finals. Vermont’s state tournament will be held Saturday, March 23, at Champlain Valley Union High School. Problem descriptions are online at http://www.odysseyofthemind.com/. More information is on the Vermont OM website: http://vt.odysseyofthemind.org/.
            Questions? Contact Lisa Scagliotti, 244-1444, or lscagliotti@comcast.net. Please check in if you or your student is interested but cannot attend the Oct. 23 meeting.

The CBMS Lost & Found is growing....come and get 'em!

Are you a student aged 12 to 17 who would like to help the Waterbury Public Library choose new young adult books and plan programs and activities for teens? Then join the WPL Teen Advisory Group (TAG) and brainstorm some new ideas to make the library more teen friendly. Participation in the group can count towards required community service, or “Change the World” projects, and it will look great on a college resume! The next meeting will be on Tuesday, Tuesday, October 16 from 3:30-5 PM. Snacks will be provided!  
The next TAG meeting is scheduled for November 20 at the same time. For more information, contact Michelle at 244-7036, or email: michelle@waterburypubliclibrary.com
