Random Acts of Kindness, Healthy Hearts, and Valentines’ Celebrations

February is a month filled with important and fun activities. WCES is participating in three of these very special activities during the month of February.

This month kicks off with kindness! Community Service Club started a Kindness Matters Movement by creating special notes to brighten the day of those around our school. This started a chain reaction throughout our building as we moved into Random Acts of Kindness week. This is a special emphasis for students and staff alike to do something kind for others. Follow this link for some great ideas on how to show kindness to those around you.

February is also Heart Disease Awareness month. WCES is gearing up to participate in the American Heart Association’s Hoops for Heart. This is the 40th Anniversary of this program. During PE class, students learned about some special characters who work at the Heart Hero Headquarters. These characters are training WCES students to live heart-healthy lives. Later this month, students will help raise money for the American Heart Association through Hoops for Heart. The packets with more information will come home next week. We are looking forward to a great month of learning to have healthy hearts that will last for the rest of our lives.

And, we can’t forget the highlight of the month - Valentine’s Day! Students enjoyed a variety of games and activities at Wednesday’s class parties. Thank you to our parents and PTO Room Representatives for helping plan such a fun time for all of us!

With Random Acts of Kindness, Hoops for Heart, and Valentine’s Day - February is definitely an exciting month at WCES!
