FROM THE OFFICE OF PAUL VEINOTTEHygiene
It is important for students and parents to be aware ofthe need to be clean at school! Body Odor can be serious andmake things difficult for students. Here are some tips toremember:
 
- Studen
ts’ aged 10 and up should begin showering or bathing
once a day. Younger children can often shower or bath everyother day, depending on their activity level.- It is important to use soap and not just duck under the waterbriefly.- Hair produces oil, so it is important to wash it. Hair can bevery different; some hair produces more oil than others and will
need to be cleaned more often than hair that doesn’t produce a
lot of oil.- Adolescents should begin using deodorant to help prevent bodyodour.- Students should try to wear clean clothes each day. Even if your child wants to wear that favourite sweater all week, itneeds to be washed!- Everyone should brush and floss their teeth. Brushing shouldbe at least twice a day.
MATH ON COMPETITION
Congratulations go out to all of the students who competed inthe Math on Competition. The students had some verychallenging questions to complete but rose to the occasion.
EnaBrennan and Mira Tan

L.I.F.E.: Learning Is For Everyone
The Wolfville School L.I.F.E. benevolent fund supports theprinciple that all students should have the opportunity toparticipate fully in school.
School budgets are limited. As aresult, schools are not able to meet the needs of all students. TheL.I.F.E. fund may be used in
support of our philosophy that “NoStudent Should Go Hungry” or to ensure that no student is
 prevented from participating fully in their class or school-based
experience because they don‟t have the proper supplies or 
necessary resources. It provides financial support to addressspecific student needs related to learning.Through the generous financial support of local businesses and
residents we can better meet the needs of our students. Here‟s
how: Provide us with your business card and for only $20 amonth we will include it in 2 editions of our school newsletter.
It‟s low
-cost advertising for you and the proceeds go to a greatcause! Call Mrs. Davison or Mrs. Fox in the school office at 542-6055 or drop by with
 your
business card. Thank you in advancefor your support.
