heartJUMP ROPE FOR HEART  heart

IT TAKES HEART TO BE A HERO

     Each year at HCE we participate in the Jump Rope For Heart Fundraiser.  This fundraiser is sponsored by the American Heart Association.  By partnering with the American Heart Association, we are helping to raise money to support heart disease and stroke research.  This program promotes the value of healthy lifestyles and teaches our students the value of volunteering. 

     We kick off our fundraiser in February when we begin our jump rope unit in class.  During this time, students will learn several jump rope skills.  They will also learn about how the heart works and how we can build a strong and healthy heart.  We will begin handing out packets the first week in February.  Students will have until the end of Feb. to collect donations for the American Heart Association.  We will hold our Jump Rope for Heart event the first week of March during regular PE classes. 

     For the 2013-2014 school year, HCE raised $2776.15!   We were able to raise over $1500 more this year than we did last year.  Congratulations HCE for helping out the American Heart Association!!  Congratulations to Jonathan A. who was our top money raiser for our school!
