​Health & Wellness at the CBE

At the CBE, we believe in a whole school approach to health and wellness. We call this our Comprehensive School Health (CSH) approach. CSH is about healthy eating, active living, supportive social environments and positive mental health. As a system, we focus on the following four areas: healthy eating; healthy relationships; physical activity; and positive mental health. Each school creates its own approach and goals for health and wellness.

RT @Mathgarden: Grades are not only dehumanizing, they are statistically inaccurate. Any teacher who hums and haws about **bumping up** a grade from 77 to 80(for cosmetic purposes) doesn't realize there must be at least a 10% **error** to issue that grade in the first place.

RT @robertkaplinsky: I love this context for introducing Least Common Multiple to students. How many hot dogs and buns should Steve Martin buy? https://t.co/PnsbKZazot #iteachmath #MTBoS https://t.co/iQFZYPBE5E
