Principal’s News – February 2018

Winter is here!  Stay healthy and fit!

1.  Make sure to get outsidewe need catch up on some Vitamin D.  Hiking poles will help with balance and increase arm strength.

2. Look for opportunities to be active such as catching up with a friend by walking and talking.  Park some ways from stores and businesses to increase your walking time and distance.

3. Set a family health and exercise competition with a reward at the end

Theres plenty to do in winter.  Try a new sport: snowshoeing, skate skiing, skiing, cross country.  Take the kids sledding.  Ultimately, have some fun!

Talk about the risks associated with meeting online “friends” in person

Adults should understand that the Internet could be a positive meeting place for children, where they can get to know other young people and make new friends. However, for safety and to avoid unpleasant experiences, it is important that children do not meet strangers they have met online without being accompanied by an adult, friends or others they trust. In any case, the child should always have their parents’ approval first.
