2)  Reminder we are now well into term 3.  Keep working hard in our last 3 months!   Aim high with your goals.

3) Health Fact:  

What if instead of making mega-changes with the all-or-nothing approach to weight loss and good health, you resolve to tackle a few simple changes at a time? Studies show that the health and weight loss habits that have the best chance of lasting are the ones that call for minor, doable changes.

4) Report cards go home today.  Be sure to return the envelope signed on Wednesday.

For grade 7 students, you will also be taking home your FSA results.

5)  Class photos will be taken this Thursday.  Be sure to be looking your outfit for the photo shoot.
