Thanks for Kids Observer
I really liked the last issue (April 27, 2014) of the Williston Observer and all of the kids’ input. I appreciate the effort you put into doing this. I am sure that the kids appreciated the work that they put into it and it was important that they had ownership with it. I enjoyed reading their thoughts about our great town, whom they admire and why. The last issue was an enjoyable read and was on my kitchen table all weekend.
Jump For Heart 2014
The Williston School District annual Jump For Heart was again a huge success! Last Friday morning, the Allen Brook gymnasium was filled with students first to eighth grade, all jumping to upbeat music. The 2 1/2 hours went by quickly. By the end of the morning, it was announced that WSD students and the community had raised more than $22,000 for the American Heart Association.
So many people come together to make this a fun and popular event for the students. From the wonderful parent volunteers that help with all aspects of this event, to the WSD staff, teachers, PE department, bus drivers and cafeteria staff. It definitely takes a village to make it work and the Williston community never fails to support this event year after year!
Thank you to all that helped and especially to the students who worked hard to give back to their community!
Thanks again from the bottom of our grateful hearts.
