Last week, our Student Council decided to say thank you to one of our local businesses on behalf of our
school: Summers Physiotherapy. We wanted to take a moment to thank this health care service and let
them know that we appreciate all that they have done and continue to do for our communities.
We gave their employees several Giving Gertie gift bags to show our thanks. Each cloth bag contained a
Hershey’s chocolate bar, a Tims gift card, and a special note from a youth, expressing thanks to all
health care workers during these challenging times. Giving Gertie is a not-for-profit Ottawa organization
that raises awareness and helps us say thank you to our healthcare workers.
Dave and ND’s recent grads and employees took a moment out of their day to meet with Delaney and Margot to accept on behalf of his staff. Thank you to all health care services, big and small, for everything they have done during the pandemic. As we enter the month of June, and the days get sunnier, getting outside is highly encouraged for everyone, especially our ND students.
We started the celebration of the season with our Fun in the Sun spirit day last Friday, May 28th. Getting some fresh air and soaking up that vitamin D (while wearing sun protection of course) can greatly improve your mood and productivity. It is important to maintain positive mental health and work habits even as we wrap up the last month of school for the year. Keep working hard; you can do this ND!
