which promotes healthy eating, physical activity and healthy lifestyles choices for children.The City of Sault Ste. Marie, along with 45 communities in Ontario, has been selected to take part in the challenge and ADSB is one of several community partners, including health, recreation and local business, who will work together to implement community-based programs that support healthy habits among local children and their families.

Algoma District School Board is supporting the promotion of events and is encouraging student volunteers to become involved to accumulate volunteer hours.  This initiative ties in perfectly with our strategic priority of Well-being which includes a focus on physical activity, well-being and building strong character.
