Sansome Wellness Month

May is Wellness Month at Sansome School.  Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life.

To help our students become more aware of the actions they take throughout the day that impact their wellness, we have organized four weekly, health-based challenges (one for each week of May).  The four areas that our Wellness Month Challenge will focus on are Hydration, Exercise, Mindfulness, and Sleep.

Each Friday in May, a special Wellness message will be included in "Notes from the Office" to notify  families of the upcoming week’s challenge, as well as to provide you with additional information on the impact each challenge’s theme can have on your child’s overall levels of wellness.

For the first week we are asking our students to bring a 500ml reusable water bottle.  We will provide the students with three elastic bands.  Students will attempt to drink 1L of water each school day (making sure to pace their drinking throughout the day).  Each time they finish a bottle of water, they will move one blue elastic above the orange elastic.  Health classes will be dedicated to covering the importance of proper hydration on a daily basis.

We hope that you enjoy the information and challenges we created for your child throughout the month.  More importantly, we hope that these challenges will help our students adopt healthy, active lifestyles throughout their lives.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and support.  If you have any questions, please email Mrs. Starkell at
