The Kids Heart Challenge
The Kids Heart Challenge continues in Physical Education Class. Students have been educated on heart healthy choices and challenged to pick one goal to set for themselves that would improve their heart health. Goals include getting 60 minutes of exercise each day, choosing water over sugary drinks, eating less sodium, staying away from tobacco products, eating more fruits and vegetables each day, and educating others about heart health. Throughout the month, we have been working on our jump rope skills and will have a culminating event during classes the week of February 4th-8th.
Students have received information about the event in their take home folder. If you would like to be part of this event, you can Register here , and search for Bethel Springs Elementary. All donations raised will go to the American Heart Association and the top fundraiser from each grade will get to choose to pie the principal or their PE teacher!
Thank you to all who have already registered and donated! As of now, we are half way to our goal of raising $7,000!!
