Nurse's Corner
To begin a Healthy New Year, St. Joseph School will again be adopting the 9-5-2-1-0 plan. It is a plan to promote healthy lifestyles for our children. Our goal is to support our parents as they work to encourage healthy behaviors for their children

The mnemonic for 9-5-2-1-0 stands for:
9 Get at least 9 hours of sleep per day
5 Eat 5 servings of fruits and vegetables per day
2 Limit screen time to no more than 2 hours per day
1 Get at least one hour of physical activity per day
0 Avoid beverages with added sugar

We will dedicate each month to a different component of the program. Starting in February, we will focus on getting 9 hours of sleep each night. Information will be sent via the “Bark” and by the grade teachers via the classroom email
