Dressing Appropriately For Cold Weather

October 20, 2020

Dear Families,

Now that we have several weeks behind us and the students are settling into the routines, we must begin to focus on ensuring that the students are prepared for the outdoors.  As you may have heard, the students are spending twice as much time outdoors as compared to previous years. This increase is due to Physical Education being completely outdoors apart from inclement weather (i.e. Heavy rain or a temperature –27C or lower).

There are several benefits to moving instruction and learning outdoors with numerous scientific studies supporting this movement. The following are a few things that will be positively impacted over the course of the coming weeks and the rest of the year as we consistently spend more time outdoors:

  • Relieve stress
  • Strengthen immunity
  • Decreased fatigue
  • Increase self-esteem and better moods
  • Increased focus and information retention

To maintain these benefits and ensure that they are maximizing their potential throughout each day, it is paramount that you help your children prepare for the unpredictable conditions we will be encountering.  Attached is a basic checklist of items that students may require for our Autumn. Also provided, is a checklist with items to start planning for winter gear.

Should you require additional warm and outdoor clothing, or have any other questions, please contact the school.

See you outside!

Our students and staff did our annual Terry Fox community walk this morning. Great way for all of us to honour a true Canadian hero. Thanks to those who have donated to cancer research through the Terry Fox website, or other cancer awareness campaigns.

What a nice way to start the week, seeing the artwork from our Grade 1 students on display near our front entrance. Reminded that every child matters.
