Healthy bodies make healthy minds! Please note that the Nutrition program is in danger of closing due to a lack of donations.  Currently the program is subsidized but to run effectively it requires a donation of approximately $5.00 per month per child. This is less than 30 cents a day per child for a nutritious snack for every child in the school every morning!  Every child receives this snack and they are available  all day for the children to eat when they are hungry.  If you have not done so, please consider sending in a donation to the school to help the cost of this very important program. Cheques(to St. Leo School)  or cash can be sent to your child's teacher with a note directing the funds to the Nutrition program. If you have any questions please respond to this email or speak with Claire McMullan.  Thank you so much.
