THANK YOU!!!

Thank you so much for all the support we had for Kids Heart Challenge!  We surpassed our goals of raising money for American Heart Association and getting half our school to register online.  We raised $11,404.00 and our goal was $9,300.00.  We had 311 students register and our goal was 283.  That is amazing!!!  So not only did we help out a great cause, we also earned some PE equipment for our school! Thanks for being willing to do it all online too, we can not begin to tell how much time that saved us.

We are still in the process of handing out thank you gifts, so hopefully by next week we will complete giving all the key chains and wristbands.  Please note prizes like jump ropes, t-shirts and playground balls etc. will be ordered next week from American Heart Association and then they will send them to us,  after spring break.

Thanks again, we appreciate it!

KIDS HEART CHALLENGE!

We are working our way through Kids Heart Challenge with each class that comes to gym.  Our day is focused on jumping!  We have different ways for the kids to jump and different “tools/ropes” for them to try.  Jumping is great exercise for our hearts and the kids have learned that they need to eat healthy and exercise their hearts!  There is still time to register and give to the American Heart Association.  Just registering will help our school earn some PE equipment too!

KIDS HEART CHALLENGE

Hello Georgetown Families,

We are kicking off our Kids Heart Challenge program (formerly Jump Rope for Heart) this week and our school’s event is right around the corner! Each class will participate in jumping stations Feb. 28- March 6 when they come to P.E.  Your child is learning how nutrition and being active can help us live longer, healthier lives.  Students will be receiving information about Kids Heart Challenge during P.E. class this week, that they will be taking home, please ask your child about it.

If you would like to support the Kids Heart Challenge, simply click the link below.  We are encouraging all of our students to “Take the Challenge”, choose water over sugary drinks, exercise for 60 minutes daily or do a kind deed.  If we can get 50% of our student body to take the Challenge, (register online) we will receive $500 to purchase new PE equipment.  Let’s all get healthier together!

Please note that all donations this year MUST be done ONLINE!  We are not accepting any envelopes with money turned in.  Again remember just by registering online, you are helping our school earn $500.00.  By giving a donation online your child will earn prizes and will be supporting the American Heart Association.

Jump online, take the Challenge and be a Heart Hero!
