We are asking for your help to spread the word to your family, friends, and co-workers to join our Team and assist The American Heart Association in making a difference for people who are affected by heart disease (which is our nations #1 killer) and stroke (which is the fourth leading cause of death).

Students will participate in our Jump Rope for Heart Event during P.E. class to further learn the importance of developing heart-healthy habits and learn how your fundraising efforts will help support cardiovascular research and will help save lives across the country.
Students will be receiving “The Life-Saving Puppy Squad” for donations raised. To promote our Jump Rope for Heart event, students will be encouraged to wear their dog-bone lanyards with their pups attached at school each day. Any Puppy incentive or prize the student shall receive will be given out by the P.E. teacher. Students can earn all 6 Life-Saver Pups and other Thank You gifts depending on the amount of life-saving donations they each raise!
