Velocity for Boys @ CBMS!  Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont is proud to announce that Velocity is coming to CBMS this Spring! The goals of the overall program are:
  •  To encourage a healthy, active lifestyle for Middle School boys.
  • To give boys an opportunity to try new fitness activities in a non-competitive, boys-only setting
  • To help boys build confidence and communication skills, as they bond with mentors and other participants
By creating six different activity modules, each with a corresponding lesson, we will give boys a chance to try out an activity without making a major commitment to it. Past activities include mountain biking, break-dancing, fencing, ropes course adventures, frisbee golf, orienteering, cooking, hiking and we’re always looking for new activities.  It is our goal to help each boy find at least one activity he really enjoys, and continue with it, remaining active in the future.
This year, we are offering Velocity at eight Vermont schools, including CBMS. Attached you will find a permission form for the overall program, which requests permission regarding transportation to various sites, a photo release, and some emergency contact information. 
The program will tentatively run on Thursdays from 2:30-4:30, beginning April 30th and running through June 4th The program costs $60 per child, and some scholarship money may be available upon request.  Checks should be made to "Velocity BCBSVT", and sent with the permission slip to the CBMS office. Contact Dan Gratton, the CBMS Velocity coordinator, to learn more….dgratton@wwsu.org or 244-6100 x122.   This program is limited to 20 participants, on a first-come/first served basis.  Velocity permission slip can be accessed by clicking here

The Barnstormers Modelers Club will run a flying demonstration of remote controlled airplanes in the CBMS gym on this Saturday from 2 to 5:30.  Come see if flying is for you!

Sign up for the Family-friendly snow volleyball tournament at Waterbury Winterfest! Want to have fun in the snow?  Planning on watching/playing broomball or going to the sledding party at Anderson field on January 31? Why not add volleyball to your list of fun activities??!!  In addition to the adult coed volleyball tournament, there will be a family-friendly tournament too.  With relaxed rules and more people on a side, your kids are sure to have a blast.  We need at least 2 more teams, but would love to have even more.  Ideally there will be a grand finale championship on Feb 8, but even if you can only play on Jan 31, please sign up! sign your team up here.
