From Mr. Gruczka- As of 10:30 this morning as a school we have raised $1665 for the American Heart Association!! Those funds will go toward helping families and individuals dealing with heart related illness as well as fund research to provide additional help and support. In addition to helping those affected by heart disease, $160 will come back to our school in the form of certificates which can be redeemed for additional PE equipment. Thank you for all of your support for our students, our school and for The American Heart Association.

Hoops for Heart
As part of "Hoops for Heart" week, some of our 5th grade students have been helping out the Kindergarten students practice and work on their skills in P.E. The younger students love working with their "big buddies"!

From Mr. Gruczka- Hoops For Heart Week is upon us so now is the time to send in any donations in the Hoops For Heart Collection envelopes. All this week the students will be participating in Basketball themed activities in Physical Education to celebrate fitness and learning. We kicked things off first thing this morning with a surprise walking maze in the gymnasium when the students arrived! In addition to the activities they are also learning a song composed jointly by myself and Mrs. Erin Preston, our Music Teacher. Be sure to ask them to show you the corresponding movements and what they learned from the song. Thank you again from myself and everyone at the American Heart Association for all that you do to support this cause. Mr. G
