Kids Heart Challenge

Our school is once again participating in the American Heart Association Kids Heart Challenge starting March 4th, 2024!


Our students will be learning about staying strong in body and mind. We are asking for your help to reach our goal of 100% of our families learning the lifesaving skill of Hands-Only CPR. Please take a moment to watch this video of 5-year-old Phil and his mother, Megan. Earlier this year, they saved a life because they watched the Kids Heart Challenge Hands-Only CPR video.


Get started early and be the first at our school to complete Finn’s Mission!

  • Register: or download the free “AHA Schools” app on your mobile device.
  • Complete Finn’s Mission: Watch the 2-minute Hands-Only CPR video featuring cardiac arrest survivor, Damar Hamlin, and watch a music video on the warning signs of a stroke (F.A.S.T.).
  • Share with Family & Friends: Send messages via social media, text messages and/or email.


We can’t wait to see our school create a community of lifesavers this year.


Thank you,

Ms. Murray & Mr. Micali
