There’s so much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is a great time to reflect on all the things we have been blessed with. The Willard North staff is striving to work towards personal, healthy living goals. They also strive to give back to the community by participating in the Willard Care to Learn Turkey Trot. Care to Learn provides immediate funding to meet health, hunger, and hygiene needs so every child can be successful in school. All the proceeds received are used locally. WN had a total of 28 family, friends, and co-workers participate in this year’s charitable event for Care to Learn. The Willard North Turkey Trot team was recognized with the Team Spirit award again this year. The theme for this year was to dress in camouflage as a hunter, and our slogan was “Willard North is Hunting Down Hunger.” We had a lot of fun and it was a great time spent with our Willard North family on Thanksgiving Day.
Also, many staff members participated in the Health Risk Assessment at the beginning of this month. Those who participated will be getting a t-shirt.
Congratulations to the staff that participated in the “Willard North Health and Wellness Points Challenge”. This challenge helped staff form and maintain a healthier lifestyle. Congratulations to Mrs. Taylor for being our lucky winner of the Academy $25 gift card drawing.
Mr. Anderson was the lucky winner for November’s Turkey Trot drawing.
WN has also offered a couple of Willard University classes for anyone in the district to participate in:
Boot Camp style workouts that focus on strength conditioning and cardio. Each workout is designed to fit all fitness levels. Classes are set up for you to workout at your own pace and skills.
Watercolor Basics – This class is offered to benefit mental wellness through the creative explorations of watercolor. Relax and enjoy learning some basic watercolor techniques through a guided step-by-step process. We will complete an 8 x 10 painting each class.
