The month begins
with some school spirit activities. We started the week with wearing plaid and
our school colors. Today the students went swimming at the Dieppe Aquatic
Centre to celebrate their healthy snack challenge. March is national nutrition
month! Public Health encourages us
to share meals together: it opens dialogue, connects people and helps us eat a
more balanced diet. Share a meal together tonight:
Rice Bowl – Southwest Style
Ingredients: 1 teaspoon
vegetable oil, 1 cup chopped vegetables (peppers, corn, tomatoes, zucchini), 1
cup chopped meat or beans, 1 cup cooked brown rice, 2 Tablespoons salsa,
