Thanks to some funding from the Alberta government Southview Community School will be able to implement a nutrition program. The program will be led by our newly hired Nutrition Coordinator Ally DeWolfe. This program has several goals including educating students on healthy foods and healthy living, providing healthy food access free of charge throughout the day, creating a sustainable nutrition program and involving and empowering students to take charge of their diet.
Our school is committing to being a “healthy school” and as such will no longer be promoting, distributing or raising funds using foods that are considered “unhealthy.” Beginning in April we will no longer be selling weekly hotdogs to raise money for field trips. The school will look at alternatives to support this meaningful learning opportunity so that there is no impact on student learning.
As always please feel free to contact me at school if you have any ideas, questions or concerns.
