THANK YOU to LOW Community Regional Foundation
HUGE Thank You to the Lake of the Woods Community Regional Foundation for providing the funding to purchase a new commerical fridge for Evergreen's Breakfast Program!!
With LOW Community Foundation's help we were able to replace two older household refridgerators with this awesome commercial sized unit. This new unit allows the program to buy in bulk and keep foods at a consistent temperature as per NWHU specification.
Evergreen School takes pride in it's Breakfast Program and it's ability to continue to provide all Evergreen students with a nutritious breakfast meal. It is through the endless work & dedication of EG volunteers, EG staff and with the help of The Lake of the Woods Community Regional Foundation we are able to do this. THANK YOU!!
Children's Mental Health Week
Evergreen Public School “GETS LOUD” for Mental Health
It’s the Canadian Mental Health Association’s (CMHA) 64th Annual Mental Health Week! This year the CMHA asked Canadians to GET LOUD for mental health, so the students and staff at Evergreen Public School, did just that. Classroom teachers held discussions with their students about the importance of being mindful and aware of how we are feeling. They talked about things that make them feel worried or stressed and discussed things that they do to help them calm down, or feel happy again. In the junior grades, teachers also discussed the challenge of a mental illness and made students aware of the agencies and community supports that are available to help them and their families.
As a staff, we were really happy with this activity. It encouraged us to take a pause and talk about mental health and wellness with our students. Having a conversation about stress, worry and mental health, helped to create awareness and build a supportive community within the school environment. Both our students and staff were able to come up with a variety of activities and strategies that they use to help them overcome obstacles in their lives. Each student and staff member recorded their idea on a speech bubble. The speech bubbles were then used to create a collective display of mental wellness strategies located at the entrance of our school. It is our hope that students, staff, parents and family members will stop to take a look at our display and be reminded of the variety of things we can do to promote mental wellness and where to go for help when a strategy alone is not enough.
CMHA wants Canadians to GET LOUD – to be heard, raise awareness, reduce discrimination and stigma, and to show the importance of supporting mental health programs and services across Canada. The students and staff at Evergreen feel like they have taken one small step to accomplishing this goal.
