FITGO is coming to our school as part of Healthy Schools Week February 26-March 2, 2018. This exciting challenge is for all elementary schools in the St. Benedict Family of schools and the Resurrection Family of Schools. Each school will be part of a friendly competition where students will have a chance to take part in two ways:

1) Classroom Challenge – classes will work to complete a FITGO card in 5 topic areas for a chance to be named the overall 2018 FITGO Challenge winner in both the St. Benedict and Resurrection Families. The 5 categories include daily physical activity, healthy bodies, healthy eating, healthy minds, and a healthy environment. The winning school in each family will be given a special school-wide prize.

*New* for Intermediate classes this year is the chance to add an extra 5% to their school score by creating a new intermediate card for next year’s competition.

2) School Wide – classes will be able to add to a PHOTO FITGO card by sending photos to their principal which provide examples of activities under each of the 5 categories. The PHOTO FITGO card will give each school a chance to add an extra card to their school total. Schools are encouraged to tweet out pictures under each category using the hashtags #FITGO2018 Plus one of the following:

  1. #PhysicalActivity
  2. #HealthyBodies
  3. #HealthyEating
  4. #HealthyMinds
  5. #HealthyEnviro

For additional fun, individual student FITGO cards are available for schools and families to use at any time on the WCDSB’s EcoZone website at FITGO Online

So, let’s join in having some fun, friendly competition within our family of schools and celebrate being a Healthy School!
