*Cougar Climbing Club* We are looking at the possibility of forming a new after-school club at CBMS, for those who love to climb! This club would be meeting on Mondays, tentatively beginning on December 2nd, and would meet from 2:30-4:30, ending in time for the 4:30 bus. We are looking at a nominal fee for this club....amount still to be determined, and scholarships will be available. This club would utilize the climbing wall in the CBMS gymnasium, with trips to PetraCliffs and outdoor climbing sites as skills progress. While we work out the details, right now we are looking for interest in this proposed club. If your child is interested in this idea, please contact Assistant Principal Wade Cole (firstname.lastname@example.org or 244-6100) to let him know. Once we have an idea of numbers, we will then ask for "formal" sign ups.
