Health Initiative continues December 1-3

As part of our on going healthy learners initiative we will be focusing on Active Living on December 1-3 with some great support from our community.

In October, we hosted a day to focus on hydration and healthy eating. We gave out water bottles, encouraged students to use our new hydration station and to eat a good breakfast.  More students are now bringing water bottles from home, filling them up and hydrating during class to keep their stress down and their brain activity up!  In December, we turn our thoughts to Active Living.

To help us celebrate the benefits of fitness to learning, we are extending our lunch time by ten minutes on December 1 & 2 and offering some great classes taught by fitness leaders in our community.
