A series to share #smiles across our community through the achievements of our local youth, brought to you by Rendezvous Dental.

Willow Creek Elementary students are celebrating “Have a Heart Day” today, February 17th, by volunteering their time for different causes this afternoon. Kiddos had the option to choose how they would like to make the community smile, shared Willow Creek staff member Aimee Fredrickson.

Students had the choice to read to students at Aspen Early Learning Center, doing science experiments with the preschoolers, kindness rock art at Willow Creek, hiding nice library notes in books at Willow Creek, operation valentine (writing letters to a veteran at Willow Creek), helping out at the food store, reading to animals at the PAWS shelter, cleaning and planting at Sweetwater Gardens, making treat bags for our police officers and firefighters, and coloring with the elderly at Homestead Assisted Living.
