Both we wish lots of reading pleasure.
The 2016-2017 School Year:
Dear Students and parents
Welcome to the Sister Marie Laurence School. For those students who are returning welcome back and for our new students we are happy to welcome you to the SML family. We are in the process of getting to know each other and discussing expectations. Your children will receive a well rounded education at our school. We expect trust, involvement, and cooperation from you the parents. It is extremely important that we build a relationship with each other. A monthly school newsletter will be available every month to keep you the parent abreast of what is happening at our school. This newsletter will also be available on our website. We look forward to working with you and your children. On behalf of the teachers and staff, I extend a warm and heartfelt welcome to you as we begin this 2016-2017 school year.
Project Healthy Schools
As of this school year Foundation Catholic Education will begin a program that should make our schools healthier. The school community thinks it is important that our students eat and drink healthier. Children that eat and drink healthy are able to concentrate and learn better at school.
Our first goal is to drink less sweet beverages at school and to promote water. All children in Cycle 2 are going to commence with nutrition lessons, which are meant to make you become aware of what you drink. This will be done by hanging beverage posters in all classrooms as of mid-October.
Did you know that for instance, a box of apple juice contains almost as much sugar as a can of soda and that Capri Sun contains almost three cubes of sugar?
Water is the best drink you can ever give your children, it keeps them healthy and fit.
A rubric will appear regularly in the schools’ monthly newsletter and website whereby we will inform you of fun-facts pertaining to healthy nutrition and we will update you on the project at the school.
Join us and in drinking less sweet beverages and more water.
