Cypress Trails Elementary School Takes Part In ‘Kid Heart Challenge’

Cypress Trails Elementary School students participated in the American Heart Association’s “Kid Heart Challenge” on Friday, Feb. 15. Students jumped rope, played with Hula-Hoops, jumped hurdles and jumped on trampolines to get their hearts pumping for 30 minutes of physical activity. The Heart Health curriculum focuses on how students can keep their hearts healthy by eating colorful foods, exercising every day, avoiding sodium, choosing water over sugary drinks and never smoking. Many of the students also collected donations for the American Heart Association, raising more than $2,500 to help fight heart disease and stroke.
