Dear Parents,

We need volunteers for Junior Achievement (JA) lessons. Junior Achievement is a nonprofit organization that aims to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in their futures. Their aim is to help bolster the educational and future success of our students by promoting financial capability, work and career readiness, and business ownership. In the process, volunteers serve as role models helping to positively impact young people’s perceptions about critical life skills, as well as the importancePadres/Tutores de Canyon Crest,

¡Espof education.

Parent, community, and business volunteers present JA lessons to students and we need your help getting these lessons into our classrooms. Each grade level has its own curriculum of five to six lessons, each lasting 30-45 minutes. Volunteers typically visit the classroom once per week, although some teachers prefer to have the lessons closer together, or even all in the same day. Lessons tend to work around volunteers’ schedules as well as availability of time to set aside in class. Most teachers are very accommodating to volunteer schedules, as they understand the importance and benefits of Junior Achievement  for our children. Junior Achievement provides all lesson materials at no cost to the school, as well as a 30-minute volunteer training. Once all volunteers are signed up and trained they coordinate directly with the teacher to find dates and times to come into the classroom.

This is an independent program and not a school sponsored event. 

There is an additional $50 bus fee that is NOT optional. This fee is paid directly to myself via Venmo, cash or check and I then in turn pay the charter company with one cashier’s check for the total amount. 

Corporate passes CANNOT be used for ski school. Lift tickets ARE NOT included in the lesson price and must be purchased separately unless the participant has a season pass. 

You can either rent skis from Sundance, use your own skis or rent from somewhere in the community. Sundance rentals this year WILL include a helmet. 

Skiers must be at least 8 years old to participate & snowboarders must be at least 9 years old.

All students must have a completed and signed online release form from a parent/guardian. I will also have a separate waiver that must be completed. 

Participants will be released from school at 12:30pm on each day of the program. 

Parents must be made aware that there is a 1⁄2 hour of free skiing after the lesson without supervision of the Sundance instructors. Participants cannot skialone. If they want to do one additional run after lessons have ended they must ski with a friend or other participant in the program.

Please reach out if you have any additional questions!
