Drinking Water

What many of us don’t realize is that dehydration is one of the frequent causes of headaches, especially in children. In order to promote good health and guard against dehydration, which has a negative impact on health and learning, our children are encouraged to drink water frequently during the day. I would like to take this opportunity to remind parents that children are allowed to have water bottles in class to sip during lessons – however, no fruit juice, fizzy or other sweet drinks please.

Did you know I have a wonderful webpage with lots of useful information?! Just visit the link below. You may also obtain clinic forms on this site as well!
