Embracing the Power of Kindness: February's Heartfelt Journey

Hello, HEB parents and guardians, 

As we step into February, a month associated with love and warmth, we're excited to explore the heartwarming theme of Kindness. This month, let's join hands to spread positivity and create ripples of compassion that touch hearts both big and small. Join us on a journey of making the world a brighter place through acts of kindness and genuine connection. 

Here at HEB we offer the Community Helpers program to our natural helpers. These individuals possess characteristics like empathy, care, and compassion which help promote our positive school culture. This month our helpers will be empowered to get creative and provide a random act of kindness activity to our students. Stay tuned by checking out our weekly Bear Facts to see their creativity. 

We are also welcoming our local Pontiac Leaders into our school this month. The Bonnyville Pontiacs have partnered with CNRL again this season to bring the Anti-Bullying Presentation to our school to help share and spread the message of respect and standing up against bullying.
