A major focus at Washington Primary School during the 2015-16 school year has been on cultivating kindness. On April 30, WPS students partnered with Matthew’s Hearts of Hope for the Hug a Heart Pillow Project. Students and staff stuffed approximately 200 heart-shaped pillows and many senior citizens in the community pitched in by putting the final stitches on the pillows to close them up. The pillows will be delivered to nearby children hospitals and given to children recovering from heart surgery.
