A jump rope team, “The Air Devils”, from Bristol, Maine, joined our Monday Morning Meeting to help kick off our Kids Heart Challenge which will start in February.
February is Heart Month, and all the students at HSES will participate in heart healthy activities during their regular PE classes. Grades 3-5 will be invited to raise money during the month for the American Heart Association with a small portion of the donations going to the school as well. Prizes and thank you tokens will be given out after the month is over for those who choose to participate in the fund raising.
In the photo to follow, you will see various HSES students from grades 3 and 5 practicing jump rope skills and tricks with the Bristol team. Chris Perry shared that his team has 21 students on it ranging from grades 3 thru sophomore in college.
