October is Water Month at York River
As part of the Healthy Kids Community Challenge, York River has taken a Healthy Kids School Pledge to demonstrate our commitment to ensuring the health and well-being of our students. This month, students will attend a Water Month launch assesmbly and take part in classroom activities and contests that will teach them about the benefits of water. Each student has been given (or will soon receive) a resuable water bottle and flavoured water recipe cards. We encourage you to try making your own flavoured water at home uysing the recipes provided! Students will be allowed to keep the bottles on their desks during the school day and are encouraged to take them home each night for cleaning. Bottles should be washed daily with warm, soapy water, then rinsed and air-dried.
Water Month is a great time to make sure your child is drinking enough water. Water makes up more than half of your child's body weight, and is important for almost all body functions. That means water is essential to keep children's bodies working at their best. When your child starts to feel thirsty, they are actually in the first stages of dehydration! Encourage your child to sip water throughout the day before they feel thirsty. You should also try to do the same! Help us make water the beverage of choice both at school and at home.
