On January 27th, during a school-wide assembly, two Wells Elementary School 4th grade students presented awards from the American Heart Association to WES Principal Marianne Horne and Assistant Principal Ken Spinney. These awards are in recognition of WES receiving first place in its Jump Rope For Heart division and for being the top Jump Rope For Heart fund raising school in the state of Maine for 2015. In that year, WES students raised $17,900 in pledges by skipping rope. In December 2015, Physical Education teacher Kathy Calo (not in the photo) was recognized by the Wells-Ogunquit CSD School Committee for her coordination of student participation in the annual Jump-A-Thon at WES which, to date, has raised over $200,000 for the American Heart Association’s Jump Rope for Heart program and heart research.
