American Heart Association Program

Information has gone home for our American Heart Association Program. Students can choose to select either Hoops for Heart or Jump Rope for Heart.  Please indicate your child's selection on their sheet, so the correct prizes can be ordered.  Each child will participate in a variety of basketball and jump rope activities on the Thursday in their PE rotation during the month of February.  Therefore, each child will have one day for their event:  Feb. 2, Feb. 9, Feb. 16, or Feb. 23.  There is a coupon as a part of the envelope to pledge to raise at least $5, and they can turn in that completed form to earn their lanyard and Rory McFiercely.  Only turn in any money or the envelope with the total donations when it is completely finished by the end of the program.  All money is due February 28th.
