Spring Vacation

Greetings All,

I hope the kiddos are as excited for April Break as I am! We have some amazing field trips and activities planned including a tie-dying day, rock climbing and echo lake aquarium field trip.

Monday (4/23) We will be staying close to campus most of the day with a trip to Calahan Park right across the street from CKS. We plan on tie dying shirts in the afternoon, please remember to pack a white shirt to be tie dyed.

Tuesday (4/24) We will be going indoor rock climbing at Petra Cliffs- 205 Briggs St, Burlington, VT 05401. If your child is 5 years old or older and would like to participate they will need to bring $13.00 (includes all gear rental) and comfortable athletic shoes. We will be walking from the school after lunch at 12:30 pm and returning at 4:00 pm. We will have a counselor on site at the school with our younger kiddos doing activities.

Wednesday (4/25) We will be walking to Oakledge Park (weather permitting) to eat lunch and explore the lakefront. Please make sure your child is dressed appropriately based on the weather conditions. The wind off the lake can be chilly!

Thursday (4/26) We will be going indoor rock climbing at Petra Cliffs- 205 Briggs St, Burlington, VT 05401. If your child is 5 years old or older and would like to participate they will need to bring $13.00 (includes all gear rental) and comfortable athletic shoes. We will be walking from the school after lunch at 12:30 pm and returning at 4:00 pm. We will have a counselor on site at the school with our younger kiddos doing activities.

Friday (4/27) We will be going to Echo Lake Aquarium- 1 College St, Burlington, VT 05401. If your child would like to participate they will need to bring 10 dollars (or membership card if you have one). We will be departing from the school at 9 am and returning around 1:00 pm. We will be eating lunch inside Echo or on the patio outside of Echo.

The warmer weather allows us to get outside for April Break. Our fun filled week means we’ll be doing some walking to places like Petra Cliffs, Calahan Park, Oakledge Park and Echo Aquarium. Our convenient location at CKS makes these walking field trips very manageable. With that said, please make sure your child is dressed appropriately for the weather conditions and have comfortable walking shoes for about a mile walk. We are hoping for nice weather (fingers crossed!!), if we are unable to walk to field trip locations, we will have activities at the school instead.

What your child will need:

  • A morning snack and afternoon snack.
  • Lunch.
  • Rest mat (for children 4 years old and younger).
  • Water bottle.

Early drop off is at 7:30am (day starts at 8:00 am) in the gym and pick up is at 5:30pm

Any questions, please feel free to contact me (text works for me!)
