KID'S HEART CHALLENGE - FEBRUARY 19-21

For many years, Buckeye elementary has participated in the American Heart Association's initiative to provide schools with valuable heart healthy information. For one PE class, the students learn a variety of heart healthy jumping techniques and then jump rope to promote their own heart health.  We learn the value of cardio exercise and how it benefits our heart muscle and the importance of taking good care of our hearts.   

Students in grades 3-6 have the opportunity to choose to participate in a fundraising portion of the program that benefits those that depend on the American Heart Association for the wonderful programming, funding, and research they provide.  Again, the fund raising portion is optional. Our students have done an excellent job over the years of raising funds and showing how much they support this organization and all they do. Fundraising envelopes will be distributed February 3-5 for interested students in grades 3-6. The actual days for the Heart Challenge will be February 19-21. The last day students may turn in their fundraising envelopes will be February 28th. There will be an online donation option. Any monies returned in the envelope must be in check form.  

Thank you for supporting this fun and very informative program.  Our students love the day of learning new jumping techniques, helping others, and helping their own hearts be healthy, happy, and strong. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Bryk at Ext. 4158 or Mrs. Simmons at Ext. 4358

Students will have a healthy snack, engage in dynamic fitness activities, student-driven projects, team building, leadership development, and have the opportunity to complete homework. The program also features a 10% sibling discount and a 20% discount for free and reduced lunch families.  Registration will be open beginning February 17, 2020.
