All of our students participated in the American Heart Association’s Jump Rope/Hoops for Heart event earlier this month and helped to raise money for heart disease prevention and new PE equipment for our school. This was our PE teacher Mrs. Filek’s second year of partnering with the AHA’s program, and we surpassed last year’s fund raising efforts by raising a total of $5,400.
Special thanks to our other resource teachers -- Mr. Dong, Mrs. Nishibun, Ms. Purba, Mrs. Kamo and Makua Vernalani for their time and efforts setting up, running stations and distributing
prizes. Big mahalo to Zumba Jen from Hawaii Kai Towne Center Zumba Classes for spending all week warming up the students for this fun event.
Great job to our top fundraiser Amari Chang, grade 1, for raising more than $1,000! Second place fundraiser Kai Weinstock, also a first grader, raised $800! Both will receive Jump Rope for Heart medals, to be presented at the last quarter assembly.
Thank you, parents, for supporting our students, community and school!
