IT IS THAT TIME OF THE YEAR AGAIN FOR KIDS HEART CHALLENGE (formerly called Jump Rope for Heart)!
This will be our 18th year with this event. We have raised over $110,000 for the American Heart Association!! Once again this year, I am asking for your support & enthusiasm for this event. I will attempt to make this a positive event this year & make it as easy for you as possible.
~ Students were given information packets to bring home Friday, February 8th. ~ The money donations are due on the day of our event Friday, March 8th. ~ The easiest and and most effective way of collecting money is by signing up online at http://www2.heart.org/goto/gaps ~ Even if you do not plan to donate money, just by signing up your student online they can receive gifts and we earn money for physical education equipment .
I will start handing out the $5 Heart Challenge gifts the morning of February 11th. The gifts will be handed out in the Lobby everyday from 7:30-7:50. That will be the only time during the day for the students to collect the gifts.
The Heart Challenge Event will be on Friday, March 8th.
