STM Mental Health Tip of the Week

 

Swap out a snack for a healthier alternative like a piece of fruit to maintain a happy and healthy mind. Fuelling your body with healthy food increases your energy, concentration, and motivation throughout the day.

 

Saints do not forget that February 24 and 25th is Pink Shirt Day!  There will be prizes for one student in each grade that wears the most pink!   Kindness is Sweet.
