WALK-TO-BREAKFAST DAY (Wednesday-Oct 7th)

To learn well, children need to eat well. The “Walk to Breakfast” will highlight the importance of getting a healthy and smart start to the school day. Bridgewater Elementary will celebrate “Walk to School Week” by “Walking to Breakfast” on Wednesday, October 7, 2015 and invite our students, staff, parents and community members to join us. There will be four main official areas where parents and students may gather and join in the walk. Walkers may gather at 8:00 am at 1 of 4 locations this year, 1. Medical Arts Building across from the Hospital. 2. Bridgewater Open Bible Church parking lot on the corner of Exhibition and Jubilee. 3. Trailer Park on St. Phillips Street. 4.Anglican Church parking lot. We ask that all parents take the time and walk with their children. Breakfast will be served from 8:30-9:30 am in our school’s gymnasium after the walk.


Walk to School

PARENTS NEEDED: BES is seeking at least 7 parents / guardians to help children walk to school on the 1st Tuesday of each month, from November to June.  There are 4 walk-to-school departure locations, as marked on the Safe Routes to School Map.  The October and February walk-to-school days are chaperoned by teachers, but parent volunteers are needed to continue supporting these walks on the other months, or they can't be offered.  This initiative is one of several at BES that support active lifestyles, and safe walking and cycling.  Remember to have your police check volunteer applications completed from the school office. Please contact me if you can help. Siobhan: sio@eastlink.ca.
