This week (2/12-2/16) is Westchase Elementary School's Jump Rope For Heart event! During PE classes, students will be working to strengthen their hearts by partipating in various cardiorespiratory endurance activities. We encouage our students to continue working after school in order to get the recommended 60 minutes of daily physical activity.
Your donations to the American Heart Association are invaluable. This community fundraiser teaches our students the importance of giving back to families in need, many in the Tampa Bay Area. Much of the funding goes toward new research related to children's heart disease, advocating for federal and state governments to improve physical education and wellness in schools and providing middle and high school CPR courses.
Many thanks to those of you who have all ready donated. Our donation deadline is Friday, Feb. 16.
