March 2023 - Healthy Lifestyle

I hope in February you were able to spread kindness. Through the month students spread kindness throughout the school.  Students did a lot of fun activities with their classes for Pink Day!!! It was great to see the sea of pink in our building on February 22 as a way to bring awareness to a national anti-bullying initiative! 

In January, our focus was on self-care. This month’s focus has been on living a healthy lifestyle. Living a healthy lifestyle includes getting enough quality sleep, eating a balanced diet, drinking lots of water, reducing screen time, and participating in regular physical activity, as well as personal hygiene and dental hygiene. 

Did you know?

Children ages 5-13 should be getting 9-11 hours of sleep, and children ages 14-17 should be getting 8-10 hours of sleep.

Physical Activity: Children 5-11 should be having at least one hour of physical activity per day. More is better. Check out these links for more information.
