RMAE Happenings

 

RMAE Ski Club - We are thrilled to have the opportunity to offer an RMAE SKI Club this year! Professional ski instructor and RMAE parent, Olga Marinkina, has generously offered to lead the group and to give lessons to beginners.  SKI Club will tentatively run on Fridays from January-March.  Participants will leave directly from RMAE and will ski from 4-6pm at Echo Mountain.  The only cost will be $99 for the ski pass plus equipment rental if needed.  In order for it to work, we will need parent volunteers.  Please give us your feedback by following the link below, and we will send out the final registration details soon.  Thank you!

Community News/Opportunities

 

Wait Until 8th - Interested in learning more about the 'Wait Until 8th' movement in Evergreen?  The 'Wait Until 8th' is a national movement, which empowers parents to rally together to delay giving children a smartphone until at least 8th grade.  By banding together, this will decrease the pressure felt by kids and parents alike over the kids having a smartphone.  Currently, there are over 100 parent members throughout all Evergreen schools in our local Evergreen chapter of this national movement.  Stop by for their quarterly meeting at Bergen Meadow gym on Monday, September 17 at 7:00 p.m.  There will be a panel of teenagers there to answer questions you may have as to the pros/cons, etc. of smartphone use and how it has impacted their lives.  Tracy Denver, the leader of this chapter, is looking for a RMAE parent representative - if interested, contact Tracy2179@hotmail.com.  If people are interested in being a part of the loop, getting the occasional informative e-mail and want to be in the know for meetings, possible speakers, etc.....they need to be on this Sign-Up.

 

Teens and Food Allergies - There is a local Teen Food Allergy conference for teens 13 to 19 years old on Saturday, September 22nd.  Food Allergy management can often be tougher in the teen years, due to the peer pressure and the stretching of boundaries.  Kids learn a great deal about managing their allergies and bond with other teens facing similar challenges.  They hear from other teens and adults, how important carrying their Epinephrine is.   There is no cost but space is limited and advanced registration by Sept 20th is required.

Reminder:  Mountain Back Pack Fundraiser
- This is a really fun Halloween/Costume party with a live band, auction, prices, etc. It is Saturday, October 20th at 7 pm at the Wild Game in Evergreen. Proceeds will be donated to Mountain Backpacks and four other wonderful local non profits. Last year we received $9K from this event and it allowed us to expand our reach and feed double the amount of children in need.  Please come if you can and tell all your friends.  Thanks for helping to keep kids full and focused.
