The American Heart Association's Jump Rope For Heart has a new name - Kids Heart Challenge.  The focus is on children's total wellness - including heart as well as social and emotional health.  Your student learns about their heart while helping others by raising money for the American Heart Association.


KIDS HEART CHALLENGE : February 13 - March 11, 2023  


Here at Brazos Elementary, Kids Heart Challenge is included with our jump rope unit. Raising money for the American Heart Association is a volunteer only activity.  It is NOT a mandatory part of the jump rope unit.  You, as the parent, decides if you would like for your child(ren) to help raise money for the American Heart Association.  If you would like to get more information please go to www.american.heart.org/kidsheartchallenge
