From April 29th to May 27th, Saint Vincent students will be participating in the Pierre Lavoie Cubes Énergie Challenge. As you know, we are a On Bouge au Cube school this year. To encourage our students to move 60 minutes a day, we decided to take part into the Cubes Énergie Challenge. Students are encouraged to move at home with their families for a minimum of 15 minutes a day. Fifteen minutes of a physical activity such as walking or biking, equates to one energy cube that should be recorded in your child’s logbook.  For every member of the family that exercises with their child for 15 minutes, an energy cube can be filled out also.  Students will get their logbook today in class. We strongly recommend that they keep their logbook in their school bag. Every week we will be counting their Cubes Énergie and we will tally them on the official website. This is a province wide competition where many English and French schools participate with lots of past success and positive impact on families.  The Grand prize is an overnight at the Olympic Stadium followed by a day at La Ronde. Mr. Robert and Ms. Sonia will be coordinating the challenge along with homeroom teachers. Students will be encouraged to participate at school as well. We are asking parents to participate at home too. Physical activity is important not only for children, but for adults too.  Studies have proven that with daily movement activities there is an increase in an individual’s concentration and mood, a decrease of anxiety and stress at home, school and the workplace.  It is essential that physical activity become part of our routine at home. Let`s use this challenge opportunity to make physical activity a priority for our children. For more information, please visit There is a section for parents with examples of activity you can do. Should you have any questions, please contact us.
