Heart and Stroke Update/Bike to School Reminder

Heart and Stroke Update:

THANK YOU for helping to make our Heart&Stroke Jump Rope for Heart event a Jumpcredible success! Together, we raised $6668.90 for the Heart and Stroke Foundation – thanks to your support! Supporting kids’ health for more than 30 years, the Heart and Stroke Foundation encourages kids to get active while they collect pledges for heart disease and stroke research. Jump Rope for Heart delivers fun and accessible games with information that encourages healthy eating, daily physical activity and giving back to the community. In addition to raising funds to support the organizations’ mission, JUMP activates our kids to embrace a lifetime of healthy living and social responsibility. Plus, thanks to the generous efforts of you and your child(ren), our school also earned valuable resources through the Heart and Stroke Foundation’s HeartSmartTM Points Program. Together, we can help protect hearts and keep all kids healthy.

Prizes will be distributed this week and next week.

Bike to School Day:

A reminder that tomorrow is bike to school day. Please remember to send a lock as students will NOT be allowed to bring their bikes into the school. All bikes can be locked at the bike stands and around the school yard fence.


Thanks for your support.
