KWS Bear Road Elementary School Celebrates Successful Kids Heart Challenge
|Students and staff at KWS Bear Road Elementary (KWS BRE) recently celebrated their VERY successful Kids Heart Challenge for the American Heart Association campaign. KWS BRE is one of the many schools in the District that annually raises money for the great cause. At the beginning of the campaign, the school set a goal of raising $5,500 and this year they CRUSHED it by raising the most money they ever have with a total of $7,347!
In order to celebrate the successful campaign and thank students for their hard work, and families for their generosity, the top ten fundraisers were announced at a celebration on Friday, February 28. The top fundraisers were then given the choice of which of the school’s five special area teachers they wanted to slime. Three of the school’s very own heart survivor students were also recognized and got to take part in the sliming fun.
Many thanks to the school’s physical education teachers Mr. DeHay and Ms. Pennisi; adapted physical education teacher Mr. Miner; music teacher Ms. Proctor; art teacher Ms. Blackburn and library teacher Ms. Thornock for being GREAT sports and volunteering to be the slime-ees.
35 cups of homemade slime were distributed to the students who poured the colorful ooze over the head of their teachers of choice. In the end, all five teachers were coated with the gunk and the entire school had a great time celebrating the Kids Heart Challenge!
