A MESSAGE FROM MRS. POWERS

Dear Parents,

It may be winter but we’re celebrating a Joyful January at Wexford ! This month, we’ll begin each day with a joke to bring a smile to our faces before we tackle our day. We'll also be spreading joy with random acts of kindness.

Last week in each classroom, Mrs. Powers read “The Energy Bus for Kids” a book about living each day joyfully and overcoming challenges we may face that try to drain us of our joy. 

Students are encouraged to spread joy to others through “Random Act of Kindness” each week:

  • Jan 14 - Give encouragement to as many people as you can
  • Jan 21 - Perform an act of kindness for someone at home and school
  • Jan 28 - Contact a grandparent or relative that you haven't seen in a while and tell them you love them

He will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy. Job 8:21  

In His service,
Carrie A. Powers
Wexford Campus Principal
JOYFUL JANUARY!

LAST WEEK'S RANDOM ACT OF KINDNESS: BRING A DONATION FOR NORTH WAY'S FOOD PANTRY
