2024 Ski Bus Registration Opens October 9

2024 Ski Bus Registration Opens October 9

Reg­is­tra­tion opens Octo­ber 9th and will run until Novem­ber 14th for the Stone Ave. Snows­ports ski bus pro­gram. We will com­mu­ni­cate how to reg­is­ter through Raven’s Call and on the ski bus Face­book pageNew to ski bus and have ques­tions? Email Michelle Peters at [email protected].

After reg­is­tra­tion clos­es, we will hold a fam­i­ly and stu­dent meet­ing to go through every­thing and expec­ta­tions.

A few things to note:

1. We will NOT be offer­ing lessons through Mohan Ski School this year. If you want to arrange for your child to get lessons, they can pur­chase trans­porta­tion through ski bus and then they’ll have to get to their les­son on their own when we arrive at the Sum­mit at Sno­qualmie.

Ski bus will be trans­porta­tion only. Cost: $300/student.

2. We will be get­ting 2 bus­es through Snow Sports Con­sult­ing Ser­vice. The pro­gram will be capped at 80 stu­dents.

3. The sea­son will run Jan. 12th — Feb. 16th. We depart right after school at 4 PM and we will stay at the ski area until 9:15 PM this year, leav­ing and head­ing back to school by 9:30 PM, putting us back at RESMS around 10:45 PM.

4. All stu­dents will be required to sign a behavior/expectations con­tract before being part of the ski bus.

Stay tuned through the Raven’s Call newslet­ter and on the RESMS Ski Bus Face­book page.

What Should You Do Now?
Wait for reg­is­tra­tion to open, make sure you have your stu­den­t’s ski pass for the Sum­mit, or have a plan to pur­chase a reload­able tick­et card for the weeks we will be up there. Pull out last year’s ski gear to check that every­thing still fits and/or secure rentals. Our fam­i­ly usu­al­ly does this in the first cou­ple weeks of Octo­ber. Seat­tle Ski & Snow­board is a great option not far from our neigh­bor­hood.

The Ravens Care Clos­et needs your help! We’re stock­ing up on need­ed sup­plies for our stu­dents so every­one has every­thing they need to start the year off strong; please con­cen­trate on Ama­zon wish list items marked “high­est pri­or­i­ty” for now.

The RESMS social work­er and coun­selors make sure these items get to the stu­dents who need them most. Thanks to your gen­eros­i­ty, they are able to pro­vide stu­dents with need­ed school sup­plies and basic care items (deodor­ant, sham­poo, laun­dry deter­gent). Thanks for help­ing us care for our stu­dent com­mu­ni­ty!
Getting Ready for Fall Sports

Getting Ready for Fall Sports

Eagle Staff offers sev­er­al sports options for stu­dents through­out the year. Before stu­dents are allowed to try out and par­tic­i­pate in school ath­let­ics, par­ents and stu­dents must fill out and vir­tu­al­ly sign their online Final­Forms. Stu­dents must also sub­mit a cur­rent pre-par­tic­i­pa­tion phys­i­cal form (good for two years). Phys­i­cals can be sched­uled before, dur­ing or after school at the health clin­ic at Eagle Staff. Stu­dents can also get sports phys­i­cals at their pri­ma­ry care physi­cian or even at places like Zoom Care. Just make sure to bring the pre-par­tic­i­pa­tion phys­i­cal form with you! Once the phys­i­cal form is filled out, you will need to attach it to your student’s Final­Forms account.

Try­outs will be announced at school and in the week­ly newslet­ter, The Raven’s Call, as well.

Math & Puzzle Club

Math & Puzzle Club

The Math & Puz­zle Club is a place to explore math­e­mat­i­cal top­ics that are often out­side the stan­dard cur­ricu­lum. We argue about log­ic puz­zles, learn count­ing and prob­a­bil­i­ty through board & card games, explore geom­e­try by build­ing strange shapes, watch movies about math­e­mat­ics, and hear from adults who use math in their work and hob­bies.

We also par­tic­i­pate in local and nation­al math com­pe­ti­tions. This is a chance for stu­dents to real­ly chal­lenge them­selves and solve com­pli­cat­ed puz­zles that use grade-lev­el math­e­mat­i­cal skills. Com­pe­ti­tion Math is excel­lent prepa­ra­tion for high school & col­lege math­e­mat­ics, as well as the SAT & ACT. Com­pe­ti­tion par­tic­i­pa­tion is option­al.

The Club meets on Mon­days after school until 5:30 in Ms Rubio’s class­room (173), start­ing Octo­ber 2, 2023. Math Com­pe­ti­tion prac­tice will be held on Google Meet, on Wednes­days 4–5:30 start­ing Octo­ber 18th.

Please email Coach Nick at [email protected] if you have any ques­tions!

Math & Puz­zle Club is for Every­one. No advanced math­e­mat­ics expe­ri­ence is nec­es­sary.
