Dear Middle School Families,
As you know, we will be going to the Blue Mountain Resort, Palmerton, PA for our Middle School Adventure Day on Friday. Blue Mountain Resort has an awesome outdoor adventure area, Summit Park, which has zip lines, rock walls, and rope course. This day will provide an opportunity for middle school students and teachers to make connections and memories beyond the classroom.
During the morning, students will be split into four mixed grade groups led by 8th grade students. They will work through the different courses on site in their groups, and then have time to self-select what courses they want to go through after lunch.
Reminder About the Trip Details:
- Your child should arrive on campus NO LATER than 8:20 a.m. on Friday, September 14.
Students should arrive at school at the normal time, and we will return to campus at 4:00 PM depending on traffic.
- Please wear comfortable clothing you can move around in (Monty gear is encouraged, but not required). Closed-toe shoes are required. SANDALS, FLIP FLOPS, AND CROCS ARE NOT PERMITTED. Hair, clothing, or objects that can get caught in ropes or zip lines should not be loose.
- Bring weather-appropriate items such as sunscreen, a water bottle, sunglasses, or a jacket.
- Do not bring gum, candy, jewelry, or valuables. Rings, necklaces, and earrings can be lost, broken, and/or pose a hazard to you. It is strongly recommended that you do not carry phones, cameras, or any other object that may fall and break.
6th and 7th grade students will need to bring a bagged lunch. For 8th Grade Students, we will provide lunch on the second day of their trip.
I will send an email to all parents/caregivers when we are 30 minutes away from school. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions. We are looking forward to a great Adventure Day!
Head of Middle School
