FRESH AIR - GET OUTSIDE WITH MR. BORIA (GRADES 1-5)
Just because we’re in the depths of winter doesn’t mean the good old outdoors is off limits. A breath
of fresh air, and a spot of running about, can be as welcoming in the winter as it is at other times of
the year. In fact, it could just be the solution for cabin fever that’s reaching boiling point, after weeks
of being stuck indoors. Fundamentally, enjoying outdoor winter activities with kids is all about having
the right gear. Wrap them up warm and waterproof from head to toe and you’ll see a smile wedged
between their rosy cheeks. Mr. Boria will be playing sports, sledding, snow shoeing and other fun
winter outdoor activities.
