The Menu
To the Coaches, Teachers and Families
The City of Lakes Loppet was filled with skiing, fun, and new experiences.  The snow, the day and the ski event were perfect!  28 Loring students and their parents, brothers and sisters road the bus to Uptown.  We were greeted by thousands of cross-country skiers, snow sculptures, and perfectly groomed trails right in the heart of Uptown.  Minneapolis felt like a ski resort and village!

Kids Cook Classroom volunteers say thank you to the City of Lakes Nordic Ski  Foundation and Medica for giving Loring students this wonderful season of learning and adventure.  We are inspired to continue the lessons that connect good nutrition and physical exercise to good health.  We will encourage students to ski and spend more time outside walking or playing in the snow!  We look forward to spring and cultivating the friendships that we began, gliding through the snow, in the Loring Schoolyard Garden.   Eat well, Exercise and Do Good Work!

Loring Schoolyard Garden classes will begin after Spring Break.
