A special shout-out to the Parents and Grandmother who already signed-up:THANK YOU! 

Be in the know: Miler’s Club is held during 2-5th grade recess on Tuesdays and Fridays. Please have your children wear sneakers and bring water bottles on these days. During Miler's Club recess kids can run/walk 0.25 mile laps. Laps are tallied and for every 20 laps they receive a special toe tag charm from Mr. Wright. 

Miler's need your help: Come for any 2-5th grade Miler’s Club recess slot and record laps run by students. WE NEED VOLUNTEERS for Miler’s Club to ‘run’ consistently and successfully!! This is a nice way to see your kids during the day while being outside. Feel free to bring your little ones, the more the merrier! You can even run/walk with your kids as long as there are enough volunteers to also tally laps.

Ski Club

The Quarry Hill Ski and Snowboard Club (QHSSC) is back for the 2020 ski season! The QHSSC has been an ongoing tradition at Quarry Hill Elementary for many years. This is a great way to introduce your child/children to an amazing winter activity that they can enjoy for the rest of their lives.

We will be traveling to Bear Creek Mountain (bcmountainresort.com) with a target return time of 9:45.Click below to read about the QHSSC!
