Looking ahead – March Break is March 5th-9th
marks the beginning of the second half of the school year! Students continue to work hard at school to
meet the academic expectations placed upon them. Your support in ensuring that
homework is completed is important. It
may be a good time to re-establish homework routines like having a designated place to do homework, establishing a
regular time for homework and removing
distractions such as the television and social media during homework time.
This month students and families are being challenged
to eat a healthy snack each day. This
challenge is in preparation for March….which is Nutrition Month. Students are encouraged to eat a healthy
snack at morning recess (the school will also have some available). There will be a follow up outing to celebrate
this challenge. More information will be sent home later this month.
A recent communication from public health encouraged
healthy eating as a family at home…
o Eat more often as a family at home.
o Making healthy food choices is one of the most important things you can
do to protect your family’s health.
o Planning ahead when cooking can help you and your family eat better, save
time and spend less money.
