March Parents Please Note

Date: February 28, 2019 Author: Jennifer Plaxton Categories: News Bits

PHONE NUMBERS & HEALTH INFORMATION

We ask all parents to please make sure that they keep the office advised of any changes in their phone numbers.

It is extremely important that our files are kept up-to-date should an emergency arise.

LOST AND FOUND

We have many items in our lost and found. We also have some children who have lost items that may have gone home to different houses. Please check with your children to make sure they have not brought someone else’s items home by mistake. Also check in to make sure your children have all their items. We hope to reunite some children with their items.

Please label your child’s items with their name so they can be returned to the right child if they are ever misplaced.

NATIONAL NUTRITION MONTH

March is National Nutrition Month and a great time to think about the importance of healthy eating.

Healthy eating means eating a variety of foods from 4 groups to feel good and maintain your health.

Follow these steps to help you eat healthy:

  1. Eat the right types of food by following Canada’s Food Guide. Choose a variety of foods from each of the 4 food groups.
  2. Eat the recommended amount of food for your age, gender, and activity level.
  3. Read food labels to compare and choose healthier foods when shopping. The Nutrition Facts table and the Percent Daily Value can help you make better choices.
  4. Limit foods and drinks that are high in calories, fat, sugar, and sodium.
