Sun Valley Elementary School Partners with the American Heart Association for Jump Rope for Heart
Sun Valley Elementary School continues to partner with the American Heart Association on a heart health awareness campaign with a school goal to raise $3,500.00 during February 2014. It is staggering to think that heart disease and stroke are America’s #1 and #4 killers for women and men. Every day younger women are diagnosed with heart disease. Obesity in both men and women play a major role in heart disease and stroke. Childhood obesity rates across America s are at an all time high.
In order for SVES students to get on the right path, PE teacher Cole Hurst took over raising money for Jump Rope for Heart and the American Heart Association. This initiative was first brought to the Sun Valley Elementary community by the school’s After School Department. Hurst’s goal was to expose all of Sun Valley Elementary’s children to this worthwhile campaign of over 700 instead of just a few that were assigned to the school’s After School Program.Full Story

Since posting photos of the event on the school’s Facebook account, parents and friends of Sun Valley Elementary School have eagerly awaited the big event days on Friday, February 28 at 7:00 PM and Saturday, March 1 at 1:00 PM.
Fourth grader Isis West in Michelle Devens’ fourth grade class and Sally Petoskey’s AIG class plays the main role as Annie. It is the second musical she has participated in at SVES. West’s musical debut began last year when she played in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in the role of Charlie’s bedridden mother. She quickly learned that having the lead role in Annie would take a lot of time.Full Story
