BHC Health Weekly Announcements
For the Weekend Friday- Did you know household chores such as sweeping, raking leaves, and taking out the trash are physical activities? Try helping out at home this weekend and get some more physical activity!
Mindful Monday- Try the "Five Senses" exercise. Notice 5 things you can see, 4 things you can feel, 3 things you can hear, 2 things you can smell, and 1 thing you can taste.
Tell Your Neighbor Tuesday- One of the best ways to be healthy is to be active and choose healthy foods and drink. My favorite healthy drink is _________. Tell your your neighbor (friend, family member).
Wacky Fact Wednesday- Honey is the only edible food that never spoils.
Think About It Thursday- Our brains work better when our body has been active. Think about getting up and moving your body the next time you struggle to focus.

Halloween Costume Guidelines
All of us at Havel work diligently to teach children how to solve problems in a non-violent way. For Halloween we do not want to see children dressed as perpetrators or victims of violence. This includes props and accessories related to blood, gore, and weapons. Parent, please monitor your child’s costume choices. Keep in mind we don’t want our youngest students frightened by gory or scary costumes. Those should absolutely be avoided. Students whose costume may be too much for our younger students may be asked to not wear their mask or possibly not participate in the parade.
