Everybody on the BUS!

It's a school day, a Thursday to be precise. The Fayston Elementary kids have finished their lunch, donned their ski/snowboard gear (got your helmet?) and are piling on the bus. There is skiing/boarding to be done and it's off they go to Mad River Glen or Sugarbush. No kidding (in fact, all kids 1st - 6th grade), every Thursday afternoon for 8 weeks throughout the winter.

Didn't grow up here or have children in the school system? Then maybe you're not aware that the Valley elementary schools participate in winter sports programs. With the support of countless volunteers (parents, teachers and neighbors) and the generosity of the resorts our schools get the kids outside and teach them what winter's really all about. In the name of fun physical education, mind you, but hey, a kid's gotta do what a kid's gotta do. Everybody on the bus?
