Kids Heart Challenge is This Week

Mrs. Anker and Miss Paolino want to remind everyone that the Kids Heart Challenge is this week!

One of the goals of this program is to help every student at our school to live a heart-healthy lifestyle, which can start by taking one of the American Heart Association’s Heart Challenges to:
  • be active 60 minutes each day,
  • drink water over sugary beverages,
  • do a good deed daily

Students can click here to view Stillmeadow's page on the Kids Heart Challenge website and sign up to complete a challenge and raise money to support the American Heart Association.

Thank you for helping a great cause!
