Thank you so much for those of you who participated in this year's Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser. After running the numbers, it appears that HMS has raised over $3,000 for cardiovascular disease and stroke prevention! It continues to amaze me how supportive this community is of our school and it's programs.
As a thank you for our efforts, the American Heart Association will not only provide small gifts to participating students but will also donate gift certificates for new PE equipment. As it looks now, we should be receiving about $200 in certificates. I will make sure this money is spent on new and creative ways to help children enjoy physical activity.
Thank you again and remember to take care of your heart :-)
