School News

  • Kids Heart Challenge is almost here! Thank you for your support and help in educating students on how and why they need to take care of their hearts. On 2/12/2021 Agent KHC will kick things off by taking students on a mission to find the missing heart heroes, fight heart disease and help others. When they are done, they will be official Heart Heroes! Your student can get a head start by watching the OFFICIAL TRAILER. Download the Kids Heart Challenge app or visit www.heart.org/khc to register under our school. We know not every family may be able to donate, however, as part of Kids Heart Challenge, every student will benefit from the daily and weekly missions that will teach them about HOW and WHY they need to take care of their hearts. If you can help raise funds, the American Heart Association will put those dollars to work saving lives. Every dollar makes a difference. Keep a look out for weekly email updates and be sure to check out the KHC Mission Experience and complete the daily missions!
