Hey, Gardens Elementary –                         Kids Heart Challenge is wrapping up!

 Our students are doing acts of kindness and spreading the message about heart disease throughout our community.  Kids making a real difference!

 We’re fighting hard against heart diseases and stroke.  Congratulations TEAM HERO for breaking our tie!  So far, we’ve raised $625 online toward our big goal of $1,000.  We have some fun celebrations planned for when we get there!

 Due to the large amount of students desiring to be a part of the celebration and to the suggestion of the area director for the AHA, the date was extended to March 6, 2020!!

Any student that donates $75.00 can slime Coach Pantoja! Also, we will have a fun PE day to celebrate the end of Kids Heart Challenge!
