Success Story

The SipSmart teacher guide was presented to staff. Each staff member had to complete at least one lesson from the guide and post samples of their lesson or student work on our Water Does Wonders Bulletin Board. At our Open House, we also had a sugar shocker display. Through our newsletters and school facebook page, we also tried to teach our parent community about the importance of reducing the amount of sugary drinks. Our breakfast program also only serves milk or flavoured water. As a school, we signed the Water Does Wonders Pledge. Each child also has their own water bottle and water breaks are encouraged. At our Family Fun Night is January, we also had a flavoured water station where students and parents had a chance to try some recipes. Our student council members were also involved in the flavoured water station as well as the Water Does Wonders Game Wheel station. We would like to thank the Healthy Kids Community Challenge organization as well as the Timiskaming Health Unit for all of their incredible support. Their guidance has certainly helped to keep the momentum going!
