heart heroes

Hello Parents and Guardians, 

The lifelong health of our students is very important to us here at Clarke Elementary School. This year we’re proud to partner with the American Heart Association through Kids Heart Challenge.  

The American Heart Association is working hard on the front lines to engage young people early and often as they form lifelong habits, while also working around the clock to ensure every community, including ours, has the latest science and research to be able to respond when we need it most. 

This service-learning program (formerly Jump Rope For Heart) teaches students how to care for their hearts both physically and emotionally. It also teaches the importance of giving back by raising lifesaving donations to fight the nation’s #1 killer, heart disease!

Fundraising will begin Feb 14th and Donations due Feb 25th.    

We encourage online donations, but please have all checks and cash donations turned in with your students envelope on Feb 25th.

**This year the top fundraising grade will get free PE time during their regular classes!**

Please follow the instructions below and join the team!

1.Go to your school’s KHC page:


2. Click on the Sign Up button 3. Create a username and password and then fill out the registration form 4. Share your personal fundraising link with friends and family right away via email and Facebook and other social Media.

We’re challenging every student to choose one of two things they will commit to doing better when registering: MOVE MORE or BE KIND. 

Hearts all over the world (big and small) THANK YOU for supporting us and the lifesaving mission of the American Heart Association!
