From February 18th until March 22nd, Hooksett Memorial School is participating in the American Heart Association’s Jump Rope for Heart. In PE, students will learn jump rope tricks, create routines and have jump rope endurance competitions. We will be discussing how the heart works, how to increase cardiovascular fitness, and how to prevent heart disease through diet, exercise and healthy habits. Every student will participate in Jump Rope for Heart in this capacity. This program also includes an optional fundraiser to help raise money for the American Heart Association. If you and your child decide to participate in the fundraiser, please turn in the collection envelope and money by March 22nd. Please do not send in cash or checks without the collection envelope. Online registration and fundraising is the easiest way to participate. Please check your child’s backpack for more information. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Lemay @ email@example.com.
