Winter is coming! Do you ski or snowboard or have you ever wanted to learn? Consider joining the GASD Ski and Snowboard Club Night Tracker Program! The Night Tracker Program is designed for groups of individuals ages 7+ who are looking for an easy and affordable way to ski or snowboard at any of our local mountains (Liberty, Roundtop, and Whitetail). Modeled after the Night Club Card of years’ past, with similar benefits and identical pricing, it offers skiing or riding during the 2019-2020 season. Each Night Tracker participant will receive a Night Tracker Card, which they will then present at any ticket window to receive a lift ticket valid Monday through Saturday after 4 pm, and Sunday after 3 pm. The Night Tracker Program is valid January 2, 2020, through the end of the 2019/2020 winter season, including holidays. Several package options are available for purchase, from lift ticket only (if you own your own gear) to lift, lessons, and rentals. This program is open to all students, friends, families (ages 7+), and employees of GASD! This also makes a great Christmas present. Purchase online by visiting www.libertymountainresort.com/ntlogin The Club ID is: LM GAMS and the password is a member. Complete online purchase and sign waiver electronically. (Bus transportation is provided for MS and HS student members on select dates).

The Gettysburg Area School District has agreed to partner with CommunityAid, a non-profit organization with a mission to help those most vulnerable in our local communities.
All proceeds earned from the bins on our campuses will be earmarked for the Ruth's Harvest and Franklin Friends weekend meals programs in the District. The District will receive a monthly donation, based on the number of clothing items collected in the bins. Additionally, our needy students will be eligible to receive clothing care cards to shop at their Hanover or Mechanicsburg stores.
Please consider making a clothing donation! (If you have more donations than what will fit in the bin - we can make special arrangements with the CommunityAid organization so the District receives the financial credit.)
