Drink Up and Stay Hydrated!
Next, encourage your child to stay well hydrated during the day by drinking enough fluids. Up to 60% of our body weight is made of water and brain tissue is made up of 85% water. Water is important for all major functions in our body and not drinking enough to replenish your body’s water content will lead to many problems. The first few noticeable symptoms of dehydration are: a headache, followed by fatigue and an inability to focus and think clearly, and constipation. Students are allowed to get a drink from the water fountain during their bathroom breaks. However, I encourage that you send your child to school with his/ her own water container so that they can drink when they feel thirsty while in class. Please remember to write their names on the water bottle. Click on the link to learn more about keeping everyone in your family well-hydrated.
