Stratford Students Jump For Heart

On February 20, 2013 by stratfordschools
On Friday, our Fremont Boulevard campus had a wonderful time at the Hop for Heart and Jump for Heart events to support the American Heart Association. We are very proud to say that this wonderful campus surpassed its goal of donations with generous contributions from the families. What an incredible accomplishment! Many of our other campuses participated in The American Heart Associations’ Jump Rope For Heart event this month as well.
Throughout the last week, principals at FRB were so touched by their students who brought in donations from their piggy banks and made the extra effort to collect as many contributions as possible. They would like to make a special heartfelt gratitude to their little preschooler, Ritika S. who gave $10 cash to Ms. Najmus, the vice principal, and said “it is from my piggy bank for kids with special hearts.” Ian P., a pre-kindergarten student, and his family received donations from family and friends and raised over $350! In addition, they had many more students, families, teachers, and staff who became part of the slogan “it takes heart to be a hero!” and donated to the cause of helping children with special hearts.
The purpose of Hop and Jump for Heart was not only raising money, but also educating students on the benefits of exercising and good eating habits at a very early age. Stratford kindergarteners learned and enjoyed the basic steps of jump rope, courtesy of American Heart Association and their P.E. teacher, Mr. Sagadraca. Stratford’s Fremont Boulevard campus, along with our many others who participated, plan to continue the lessons on keeping their hearts healthy for rest of the school year and welcome family and friends to do the same.
Go Stratford!
