|LBPHS TEACHERS TO HAVE A HEALTHY START TO THE YEAR|
MONTREAL, AUGUST 19, 2013 – Taking a page from the school’s renowned Sport-Études program, Lester B. Pearson High School (11575 P.M. Favier) in Montreal North is welcoming teachers back with a Wellness Day on Thursday, August 22, beginning at 9 a.m.
Adopting the theme of “Healthy Body, Healthy Mind”, teachers will be welcomed back with a morning of zumba, yoga as well as relaxation technique classes. Following a healthy lunch, the afternoon will be spent meeting and spending time with fellow colleagues in a stress-free environment.
“It is with excitement that we all begin a new journey together at Lester B. Pearson High School,” said Pela Nickoletopoulos, the school’s new principal. “Together we will accomplish tremendous personal and professional success. Focusing on the team approach leads to better results because well-functioning groups are stronger than individuals. As administrators, we will lead by striving for authenticity over perfection and we will all set the bar high to watch our students thrive, and reach their potential.”
