Spreading love with heart attacks
Spreading love with heart attacks
Franklin-Essex-Hamilton BOCES

The world has been pretty heavy lately between the pandemic and political strife, so our New Vision Government and Law class decided to bring some levity and positivity to the community. 

They cut out paper hearts and are planning to plaster them in various places around the community in what they're calling heart attacks. Teacher Tracy Edwards said they'll target various places that have helped mentor her students to promote good will.

The first heart attack victim was the office of Malone Mayor Andrea Dumas. Students Lilly Mulverhill, Trevor Ashline, Samantha Wells and Hattie Laffin-Almond wrote notes of thanks and words of encouragement on the hearts, then taped them to the windows of Mayor Dumas's office. 

Students also posted hearts with positive and grateful messages on a bulletin board at the church where their classroom is currently located.

On Friday, they also attacked the Building Trades program at North Franklin Educational Center with a punny note. 

this is not a drill
