•      Jump Rope for Heart will be held the week of February 5th to the 9th during your child's Physical Education period.  All Hurffville students are invited to take part in this event.  Students simply need to wear soft, athletic soled sneakers and comfortalble clothing the day of their event.  Jumping rope is great form of exercise that promotes heart health.  
          Two weeks prior to the event, your child will recieve a Jump Rope for Heart envelope for collecting donations if your family chooses to do so.  Students may also set up their very own Heart Headquarters web page for collecting donations.  Simply visit www.americanheart.org/jump to do so.  Your child will then be able to email friends and family and invite them to visit their page to make a donation.  We strongly encourage students to not go door to door. We thank you in advance for any and all donations.
         One week prior to the event, your child will participate in a health lesson where students are educated on various aspects of heart health.  We hope to raise awareness about heart disease and stroke and help inform children about what they can do to prevent heart disease.
