This month, Shaker students in grades K-6 have the opportunity to support the work of the American Heart Association through several fundraising efforts.
Students at all five elementary schools and at Woodbury Elementary will participate in Jump Rope for Heart, a fundraising event that builds students' skills and fitness through jumping rope, provides heart-healthy education for students and their families and raises money for the American Heart Association (participation in fundraising is optional). Kickoff events for Jump Rope for Heart took place in late January at Lomond, Mercer and Boulevard Elementary Schools. Fernway launches its program at 10 a.m. on February 1, Onaway at 2:30 p.m. on February 22 and Woodbury will kick off the program in PE classes on March 2.
The District’s goal this year is to engage as many staff, students and families as possible in learning more about heart-healthy living and to make an impact on the community’s heart health. Learn more about how you improve your own heart health in this American Heart Association Newsletter.
