ARCOLA SCHOOL WINS MOSAIC EXTREME MAKEOVER CHALLENGE

Arcola Community School is the proud recipient of the Mosaic Extreme Makeover Challenge.  Our community coordinator Pat Gwilliam and nutritionist Dianne Digness have applied for this grant for several years and are excited that we have recieved the $10,000 to support our community nutrition and hot lunch programs.  Over the next months they will be planning on how these funds will be used to support our programs next year.  We want to thank the Mosaic company for selecting Arcola Community School.  Please read the following information to learn more about the impact this program has on school.  

 

“In honour of ten years of successful partnership with BFL and the SSBA, we want this year’s challenge to leave a lasting impact on children across the province,” said Sarah Fedorchuk, Senior Director of Public Affairs for The Mosaic Company. “We are excited that schools and communities get to pick the project that will net the biggest returns for their kids. Mosaic plays an important role in food security around the world; here at home we understand that quality nutritional programming is imperative to achieving success in the classroom.”

 

Together with the SSBA and BFL, Mosaic launched the Extreme School Makeover Challenge in 2006. The Mosaic Extreme School Makeover Challenge is open to all schools in Saskatchewan. Participating schools receive a certificate of recognition acknowledging their efforts to create healthier school nutrition environments. This year’s ten winners will each receive a $10,000 prize. Entries are judged on quality of nutritional programming and potential benefits to the school community.

 

“Our students are our future leaders, and investing in their learning through nutrition programs is vital to their success,” said Kelly Berlinic, Director of Programs and Community Development for BFL. “Breakfast for Learning is proud to work with the Saskatchewan School Boards Association and The Mosaic Company to ensure all students have the nourishment they need to succeed at school.”

 

The Mosaic Company and the SSBA, in partnership with BFL, host the Mosaic Extreme School Makeover Challenge to encourage grassroots initiatives to improve student nutrition. As Canada’s first established and one of the largest national charities focusing on student nutrition as it relates to learning, Breakfast for Learning helps support and sustain school-based breakfast, lunch and snack programs Canada-wide, providing students with the opportunity to reach their full potential in life. Since 2004, the SSBA has been involved with supporting those efforts.

 

“The Mosaic Extreme School Makeover Challenge is important because school boards firmly believe that every student in Saskatchewan should have the resources and supports needed to succeed and achieve, regardless of where they live in the province or their personal circumstances,” said Connie Bailey, president of the SSBA. “The Mosaic Extreme School Makeover Challenge helps ensure all students in Saskatchewan are well-nourished and ready to learn. The SSBA is very proud to support Breakfast for Learning. We also thank The Mosaic Company for their strong commitment to excellent corporate citizenship in this province and their support of K-12 education.”
