Hoops for Heart Campaign
Hello Parents and Students,
The official kickoff for this years Hoops for Heart fund raiser will start on February 1st and run until the 29th. We are mainly doing an online donation but you will also have flyers sent home with information about the American Heart Association. It says Hoops for Heart, when you register on line it will give you the option of signing up for Hoops or Jump rope for Heart. The only difference is the prize of a soccer ball verses a basketball. I have included the link to register and two videos of why the American Heart Association is important to us.
Four months after open-heart surgery, 14-year-old Gianna Schupler won two national dance titles.
Gianna dances with the Heart of a Champion…
Gianna, the Heart of a Dancer: Dance is her WHY
