South Pointe Middle School Hosts Heart Day
DIAMOND BAR, CA-- South Pointe Middle School opened up its heart during a Valentine’s Day fundraiser.
They showed students that the holiday could be more than cards, flowers, and candy.
“Every single South Pointe student participated in our amazing celebration of the heart,” said Physical Education Teacher Ann Schnoor.
Throughout the day, P.E. classes shot baskets, jumped rope, and hula-hooped during the heart awareness event.
The “fun”-raiser also encouraged students to improve their own health and take care of their heart.
In total, the school raised $1,172 to benefit the American Heart Association’s Hoops for Heart and Jump Rope for Heart national educational and fundraising programs.
