Hi there from Frank L. Bowser School!
We wanted to remind you that in accordance with the Provincial
Healthy Foods Policy for Schools we ask that you keep nutrition in mind and our
nut free environment if you are planning on sending in a class treat on
Wednesday to the school. We ask that you
notify your child’s teacher so that they can plan accordingly and thank you on
behalf of all of our students for your generosity.
After Wednesday we would again remind you that our school is
nut free as many treats collected Wednesday night contain nuts or traces of
nuts. We also would like to remind you
that the learning environments at Frank L. Bowser can be negatively affected by
too much sugar being sent inside personal lunches and snacks. A single treat is more than acceptable
however a nutritious snack and lunch is recommended to ensure success in our
On Wednesday Frank L. Bowser is taking part in a Wellness
Day. The structure of this day will be
different than usual and students will be circulating through various stations
focused on Wellness and Inner Health.
This is planned to be a spectacular day with a few of the activities
taking place outside thus we ask that students are dressed for the weather on
that day as it is forecasted to be a bit chilly. We ask that students do not dress in costume
on that day in order to respect the beliefs of all of our Frank L. Bowser
families and have the focus remain on learning and a positive educational
environment for all.
Finally we are having great success with our clothing drive
and continue to accept donations in the foyer by the school office. We have decided to celebrate the success of
this drive by rewarding the entire school population at a future date rather
than have a charitable campaign take on a competitive structure. With this in mind we will not be keeping
track of individual class involvement but look forward to celebrating the kindness
and thoughtfulness of the community as a whole once the campaign comes to an
end. Also a friendly reminder that we will be
looking for donations for our Santa’s Gift Mart in about a month and a half so
please don’t clear out all your cabinets and storage bins just yet!
Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you have any
questions pertaining to the information above or anything else revolving around
the wonderful things happening at our fine school.
