Pearl Creek ski club helps kids get outdoors
FAIRBANKS — Pearl Creek Elementary School offers a wide array of afterschool activities ranging from Chess Club and Pre-Robotics to Native Arts and Choir. However, the most popular activity for Pearl Creek Puffins really gets them kicking and gliding.
More than 85 students participate in The Pearl Creek Ski Club. Dorte Dissing and Mette Moeller, both Pearl Creek parents, are the sponsors of the club and report that at least 25 of the participants are brand new to skiing. Many students bring their own ski gear, while others borrow equipment that the school has amassed and maintains.
Parent participation for skiers is not required, but many parents and teachers volunteer to lead and follow groups as they trek through the trail system.
Principal Kate LaPlaunt shares that “many students go on to enjoy cross-country skiing in our greater community after their first exposure at our elementary school.” In speaking about Pearl Creek’s location and programs she said, “part of living and going to school in Alaska is embracing the joys of being outdoors in the winter. We are so fortunate to have wonderful trails literally in our back yard; it would be a shame not to use them.”Read full article
