Healthy Living Day – June 14

Dear Parents and Guardians of St. Bernadette’s,

We are excited to let you know that next Friday June 14th from 9:30 -2:30 will be our Healthy Living Day at St. Bernadette’s CES.  Students will be divided in cross grade groupings (K-5) and will have Grade 6 leaders.   Groups will rotate through a variety of healthy living activity stations such as Zumba, Yoga, Soccer, Loose Parts Play, Basketball, Golf, Co-operative Games and Baseball.

The day will begin at 9:30 am and your child will have the opportunity to participate in 5 activities lasting 30 minutes each.  Each group will attend the Cool-Down Station where they will be provided with a frozen treat and fresh fruit.  We are looking for volunteers to assist in running this station.  If you are able to help (minimum 1 hour), please email me at

Students will need to be dressed appropriately for outdoor play.  This includes a sun hat, sun screen, water bottle and weather appropriate clothing.  We are hoping for a sunny day however we do have an indoor rain plan.

Special thank you to our Healthy School Committee – Mrs Scetto, Mrs. Spalla, Ms. Douglass and the YR Public Health  Nurse Amber Clements.  If you wish to get involved in this committee for the 2019-2020 school year, please let me know.  This Committee meets approximately 4 times per year during the school day to plan Healthy School Activities.

Thank you everyone and let’s hope for sunshine.

Mrs. deHaas Principal
