We are please to share the following from our Healthy Schools Committee in our board:
Walking or Cycling to School
As we start the 2018-2019 school year, we would like to remind and encourage families to consider walking or cycling with children to and from school. There are many benefits to walking and cycling to school. It:
- Improves student academic performance by making children more alert and better prepared to learn.
- Contributes to the daily goal of 60 minutes of moderate or vigorous activity for children, improving their health and overall fitness.
- Reduces traffic congestion and improves safety for everyone in school zones.
- Promotes life-long habits that foster independence and active lifestyles, preparing children for their future.
For those who can’t walk or cycle to school every day, choosing active travel once, twice or a few days a week can still provide benefits. You can also consider parking a block away from the school and walking the rest of the way. Include active travel as part of your daily routine!
Please see the following information on events hosted by the Town this month via
We are looking forward to our Mingle at Munsch event tomorrow.
Join us starting at 4 p.m. for our BBQ as well as three workshops on well being and work in equity and inclusive education. Our workshops will be located on the main floor near the office. They will run from 4 – 5:30 p.m.. Information on the workshops will be posted at the BBQ table and School Council table outside.
At 6 p.m. we will have performances in the gym. Our first round of grade one performers should be in room 126 at 5:45 p.m. and all sign language club performers in room 129 at 5:45 ready for our 6 o’clock start. We will then have a brief intermission at 6:20 p.m. to allow our grade 2/3 performers to set up. At 6:15 p.m. grade 2s and 2/3 should go to room 121 and grade 3s should meet in the multipurpose room with their recorders and sunglasses.
At this point, we have had over 400 people RSVP that they will be attending. Parking will be very limited so we recommend as many families walk as they can to the school tomorrow night. The weather looks good and it should be a great night.
See everyone soon,
