PRINCIPAL’S CORNER

Health and Wellness Week starts on Monday October 18th and to celebrate it, our Chatterton community will have the opportunity to participate in a number of activities and events throughout the week.
Monday, October 18th – Bring in a Healthy Snack
Snacks are an important part of the day to keep you energized and eating a healthy snack is even more important. Eating a healthy snack will help our busy bodies and minds going. Bring in a healthy snack like fruit, yogurt, or pretzels to enjoy during the day.
Tuesday, October 19th – Active Wear Day
Come dressed in fitness clothes, sweatpants, and dry fit shirts. Play a game outside that involves movement, teamwork, and lots of fun!
Wednesday, October 20th – Unity Day (Wear Orange)
Wear orange to show unity for kindness, acceptance, and inclusion and to send a visible message that no child should ever experience bullying. Watch this video about Unity Day. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8gKBQEQUW5g&t=81s
Thursday, October 21st – Walk to School Day
This is a great way to promote physical activity in our community and safety in our neighborhood. Enjoy the company, sounds, and sights of the neighborhood that you might not notice from a moving window.
Friday, October 22nd – Team Sports Day
Wear a sports shirt or jersey and team up to resolve conflicts together. During the school day, students can also think about ways to exercise and eat healthy!
