Education Briefs for Sept. 26 through Oct. 2
The "Park City Stands Together Against Bullying," a year-round anti-bully coalition is calling on the community to participate in "Tolerant Tuesdays," an event held on the first Tuesday of each month were participants wear either an anti-bully t-shirt or another lime green shirt to show support. The coalition hopes that by implementing these days, it can raise awareness and get the community involved in the initiative. The first Tolerant Tuesday is scheduled Oct. 2. For more information, visit the coalition Facebook page, Park City Stands Together Against Bullying.
Niños on Skis
The "Niños on Skis" program, started by Father Bob Bussen and the people of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in 1998, is in need of sponsors for the program. The Niños on Skis Program is designed to connect community members with Hispanic families and teaching Hispanic children how to ski. As part of the program, Park City Mountain Resort donates a season ski pass for each of the children in the program, as well as three ski lessons; Aloha Ski & Snowboard provides rental ski boots and skis; St. Lawrence Thrift Store in Heber supplies all the necessary ski clothing. During the first three Saturdays in December (1st, 8th, and 15th), the Niños take ski lessons provided by PCMR instructors. Following lessons, sponsors and students have lunch together at the Snowed Inn Restaurant, provided by St. Mary’s. After lunch, Sponsors are encouraged to continue skiing in the afternoon with their Niños. Those interested in sponsoring or working with a child are not required to speak Spanish but must have a PCMR ski pass. Once ski lessons are completed in December, Sponsors are encouraged to bring their Niños skiing throughout the remainder of the season. The program skis as a group one Saturday during January, February, and March. If you are interested in learning more about how to become a sponsor for the Niños on Skis Program, call Aimee Cunniff at 801-261-3440 ext. 143 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. St. Mary’s will be holding its first meeting to connect Niños and Amigos in late October.

The Park City lodging industry in recent weeks experienced an uptick in projected occupancy numbers during the dates of the Sundance Film Festival, but the figures remain depressed from a typical year during the largest special event on the city’s calendar.
