Jump Rope For Heart KICKOFF!

It's that time of year again! We will be kicking off our Jump Rope for Heart (JRFH) fundraiser this week.  To show our support for heart health we are encouraging students to WEAR RED this Friday 2/1/2013. In addition, on this day we will be sending information home with the kiddos on our JRFH event.

Insight to JRFH:

Heart disease is the nation’s No. 1 killer, and stroke is the third leading cause.  Childhood obesity has also increased to a point that it is considered an epidemic.

Each year, our school raises money for the American Heart Association to help prevent heart disease and help those with "sick hearts". All the money that we collect is sent to the American Heart Association where it is used for research to end heart disease, and for materials that teach about healthy hearts and why we need our young children to stay active. In celebration of this fundraiser, we also hold a Jump Rope for Heart day. This is a  exciting day where Students will Jump Rope to make their hearts healthier. All Students participate on this day regardless if they collect money or not.

Here is a link to read more and to register :) Happy HEARTS!

Designed to Move

Check out this inspirational video "Designed to Move". By encouraging your kids to be physical active you can give them back 5 more years to live.

We owe it to our kids to get them active EVERY day, teach them the importance of being active and help them find activities that work for them.  Ask them what they like - kids will tell you.  Then teach them how they can do what THEY like.  Reassure them that today may be different than tomorrow but that's OK.
