We had so much fun out in the snow at recess today. If you want your child to go out in the snow, we learned a few helpful tips today. Send an extra pair of socks to put on after they come inside so they have warm feet. If students have snow pants to pull over their clothes, they won't be as likely to have wet clothes on later. We made sure that all had hats, gloves, warm coats, and boots. We prefer snow boots or water proof boots. If your child wears cowboy boots for snow boots, just drop a note to the teacher that you are ok with them going out in them. When we got inside today, students laid gloves out to dry, boots were set outside lockers, and for those who only had their boots to wear, we had students wear their gym shoes so the boots could dry and warm up. I know that we can't do this everyday but I do hope to make it out again tomorrow with the kiddos who want to go out and are prepared.
