Congratulations to Robbi Stevens, 5th grade and Jeffery Huyvaert, 1st grade as Olive's top fundraisers for our Hoops for Heart Event. The school raised close to $12,000 to donate to the American Heart Association. Mrs. Schroeder's PE classes decorated hearts and made a pledge to be heart healthy or participated in honor or memory of a loved one. Over 500 hearts were decorated and placed in Olive's gym as a reminder of making heart healthy choices.
As a result of the children's efforts the American Heart Association has been able to work with health care providers to reduce the number of people dying from heart disease and stroke by 25% and those achievements are all because of lifesaving donations our students have raised!
