As of right now we are scheduled to have our Kids Heart Challenge to start in February. I am sure with Covid and restrictions that our program will look different this year. As soon as I have more information I will pass it along.
Students and classes will also have the oppertunity to earn incentives and rewards during this time. We are having grade level competitions to see which class can raise the most money. Students can also earn a pizza party, ice cream party, and extra P.E. classes based on their participation.
By participating in this program our students are helping other children who are born with heart defects and those effected by heart disease. All money that is collected goes directly to the American Heart Association to fund research, help families with medical costs, and to train volunteers in CPR. Benson Elementary is going to have a SPIRT WEEK during the last week of February to promote these programs. Below is schedule for that week and a list of rewards the students can earn by collecting donations.
