Bus drivers, friends at Wellbrooke of Westfield, Dairy Queen, the district's clinic and nurses, front office and technology teams, Westfield High School, the Westfield Fire Department and many others all received a thank you and a random act of kindness. What a great example for our students! After they completed their mission, they returned to their classrooms to find notes of thank!
