Jump Rope and Hoops for Heart Event 

Our Jump Rope for Heart/Hoops for Heart Event will  take place on  Tuesday,  Students should bring in any money raised and dress down pass purchases by  Tuesday .  Elementary students should turn in their completed 'Heart Healthy Bingo' Family Project to earn a dress down pass and extra credit on that day as well. 

This program is beneficial for our studen ts on several levels.  Students have been learning, in physical education class, about good lifestyle choices which will keep their hearts healthy.  The AHA has donated jump ropes and other physical education equipment to our school to keep our students moving.  

As Catholics this is a fantastic opportunity to serve others through our fundraising for the American Heart Association.  We are hoping all families will participate and donate to the American Heart Association!  

If you have any questions, please email 
Heather Ferullo or Karen Guastelle
