The Kids Heart Challenge Is On!
The Kids Heart Challenge is a fun and exciting event where your student learns about their heart while helping others by raising money for the American Heart Association. It prepares your child for success through physical and emotional well-being. (American Heart Association website).
Our challenge takes place during the school day of Wednesday February 19th. Each class will take turns participating in 50 min of fun physical activity. Donations can be made online if parents create an account for their student. Cash and check donations should be turned into the school no later than the day of the challenge. Please make checks out to: The American Heart Association.

Outstanding People For Education Award
The Allegan County School Boards Association presents the first annual “Outstanding People for Education Award.” The purpose of the award is to recognize and honor people in education who are excelling in their field and/or are making an impact in the quality of education in Allegan County.
Examples of whom to nominate could include: a teacher, classroom aide, administrator, secretary, board member, volunteer, bus driver, custodian, support staff, social worker, therapist, consultant, community member, or anyone who supports education.
Some things to consider when nominating are people who have made a difference in the overall quality of education by demonstrating knowledge and skill in their area of responsibility, have developed new or unique programs that enhance the classroom experience, play a leadership role in education, are a true “team player” in the school setting, provides significant support for a program or service, and exhibits an attitude that promotes a positive working and learning environment.
It could also be someone who has made an impact on the quality of an individual student’s educational experience by demonstrating sensitivity to the needs of individual students and provides service “above and beyond” their job description.
Nominations can come from anyone (students, parents, school staff and community members) and can also be kept anonymous. Forms are available online at www.waylandunion.org or in the school office. Deadline for submission is March 1, 2020.
