A few of the older students are selected to help with the younger kids so they get a little more guidance and attention - plus, the big kids LOVE it. The littles sometimes need a lift up off the ground or help getting untangled from their skis and poles. Kindergarten is the only group that doesn't xc ski, but they still bundle up and head outside for some activities in the snow for PE.
We have some snow clothes that kids can borrow when they don't have or forget to bring their snow gear to school. Pam keeps the snow clothes cycling between washer, dryer and "kid use" all winter long. It's always best if they have their own snow clothes, but if they don't, they still get to join in all the fun and exercise.
