Over the next few weeks, we will be learning about how to take care of our hearts, spreading the message to friends and family, and helping others when we can! The American Heart Association will be coming to our campus on 02/02/16 to give our students the 5 For Life presentation – 5 ways kids can make healthy choices!

The American Heart Association’s goal is to improve the cardiovascular health of Americans. They will challenge our kids to start living a healthy lifestyle now to prevent problems later; and give them an opportunity to participate in a service learning project that funds the fight against heart diseases and stroke – the #1 and #5 cause of death in our country.

Any student who registers at heart.org/jump and raises at least $150.00 online BEFORE the 5 For Life presentation will be honored at the assembly and receive Toby (pictured below).

Please join us in teaching our students the importance of being heart healthy for life!

IMPORTANT: ** Donations must be made by 6 PM the day PRIOR to the American Heart Association coming to our campus **

Kroger Store Card Fundraiser

Did you know that our campus can earn money each time you use your Kroger card? So far this year we have raised $316.98 in total donations, and this was done with just 63 families! Just imagine how much we would raise if half of our families had their Kroger cards linked to the L.A. Nelson PTA.


Please double check and make sure your card is registered. I thought mine was and it wasn't!

Click on the following to register your card and spread the word to your spouses and grandparents: https://www.kroger.com/communityrewards

The L.A. Nelson school code is 90039.
