Hi Aiken Families,
We saw a little sun this weekend, but it sure is getting a bit cold. Hope everyone was able to enjoy the nice weekend.
Norfeldt Aiken Families have a wonderful tradition of skiing at Ski Sundown! Norfeldt Aiken Families is not limited to Norfeldt and Aiken students, this is a neighborhood group. The kids receive a lesson and free time skiing, all at a reduced cost. The program runs for 5 weeks, starting in January and ends in late January or early February. Kids go on Wednesday afternoons (all family members may join), since the kids are dismissed early. Kids will enjoy a lesson and free ski. The program is for ages 8+/3rd grade+, and there are plenty of Norfeldt and Aiken families, Middle School, and High School families that participate, as well as friends of Nortfeldt and Aiken families. Last year we organized a group table with snacks and drinks, details for this year TBD. Transportation is not part of the program but some families do carpool. This is a great opportunity for the whole family to hit the slopes for a reasonable cost!
Our Wednesday dates include: January 8th, 15th, 22nd, and 29th and February 5th. Our lessons will begin at 3:30.
The 5-week prices are as follows:
Lesson & Lift: $255
Season Pass holder Lessons: $145
Lift only: $171
Equipment Rental: $135

AIKENS FALL BOOK FAIR
Aiken’s annual Book Fair will be coming the week of 11/18-11/22 (conference week) so mark your calendars! This is a wonderful opportunity to encourage your child’s reading and support the Aiken library! This year our fair will be hosted by Follett Books! Classes will have a preview day on Monday 11/18 and will come home with “wish lists”, so please be on the lookout for those lists as the book fair gets closer! We will also be looking for parent volunteers to help with the event…so be on the lookout for more information to follow! I am looking forward to another successful book fair!

There are now two easy ways to earn money for Aiken School though Box Tops for Education. You can download the app and scan your receipt, or you can continue to send in the box tops in plastic bags (grouped by 25). Of course, if you already taped them on a piece of paper we'll accept that as well. Please see the attached flyer for all the details.
You can also earn money for Aiken School every time you shop on Amazon by simply going to smile.amazon.com and selecting Aiken School PTO as the charity you want to support. You will find the exact same items and discounts as you would see on Amazon.com, but by going through smile.amazon you have the added bonus of donating money to Aiken every time you shop! Please see the attached flyer for more information.
