On Friday, students were treated to a very informative assembly. The "Our Heart Health" assembly included students "jumping rope for hearts"! They learned healthy ways to keep their hearts in good shape. Students had learned jumping rope skills in PE. The older students were also taught ways to keep their hearts healthy. They learned that "Hoops for Heart"( basketball), is an excellent way to keep a healthy heart. The presentation stressed starting these healthy habits even at a young age. Afterwards, the students answered questions about the presentation.
