July 2020

What began as a plan to tutor summer school students at our local public elementary school, Calvin Donaldson Elementary, turned into the Wilder/Fulbright small group planning and implementing Water Wednesdays for the students each week in July. Each Wednesday the kids took a break from school to enjoy some sunshine and fun. From water balloons to a giant slip ‘n’ slide to an inflatable slide, each week brought excitement and a way to keep cool outdoors. The principal shared how the kids were initially anxious about returning to school but then after Water Wednesdays with The Well she saw a huge turnaround in the kids’ confidence, affect, and mood. We are so happy this small group took the time to be present with and make a difference for this group of kids.
