Dear Parents and Staff,
For the students who are registered for snow sports next week, January 18th and 19th we have arranged an alternative plan. Students will be going to Jump Time Idaho for a ski conditioning and air awareness class that Jump Time does with various ski teams around Boise. They will be helping students work on their movement in preparation for snow sports. They are asking that parents go online to http://jumptimeidaho.com/common/home.php and fill out the liability waiver that is at the bottom of the page. Please read the instructions carefully. It is best if you register yourself, then add your child/ren’s names. Once you are in their electronic system, whenever you return to Jump Time, you will already be registered. If you do not have access to the internet, I will provide paper forms, but the computer form is preferred. A link to the Jump Time website will also be on the school website. Also, students will be transported by bus to Jump Time in order to eliminate any further complications and will RETURN TO ANSER AT 3:15, NORMAL RELEASE TIME
Because this is the second week of no snow sports, we will be evaluating what happens next with regard to the continuation of snow sports this session. Please continue to be patient as we work out all of the kinks; this is the first time in the 12 years this program has run at Anser that we have not had snow in time. We are navigating very new water and trying to create the very best experience for the students affected.

Anser students had the opportunity to create cigar box guitars and learn how to play them as part of our C3 program. Hear them sing the “UC Teacher Blues”. https://www.dropbox.com/s/8yn8ylrxb0p8n5n/UC%20Teacher%20Blues.MOV
Anser is an Expeditionary Learning School. All EL schools share Core Practices such as building background knowledge, learning outside of the classroom, working with community experts and encouraging students to become the “experts” and share their learning. This video demonstrates some of those Core Practices in action in Anser’s Kindergarten classes. http://vimeo.com/69120172
