Welcome to PLAY in Bruce Grey

Turn Off The Screens Week
May 5 – May 11, 2014
 For 7 days in 2014, students and their families are challenged to Turn Off The Screens (TVs, computers and video games) except for homework. See how much fun your family has without TV.

Each student will receive a log-sheet to be signed by a parent for turning off the screens and getting active. The 3 Grey Bruce schools with the greatest percentage of log sheets returned will receive a mounted plaque for display in their school

Turn Off The Screens! Get Up and Get Moving! Go to www.publichealthgreybruce.on.ca and click on the Turn Off the Screens logo for further information or to download your log sheet
