Hoops/Jump Rope for Heart


Ajax Loading Image


The Hoops/Jump Rope for Heart program through the American Heart Association has had tremendous success at DC West Elementary. For the past 7 years DC West has been one of the top 5 schools in Nebraska for fundraising money for the American Heart Association. For the past 3 years DC West has been the top overall school. Along with the incentive prizes that the American Heart Association offers, DC West offers quite the variety of incentives as well. In the past, if students raised over $100 they have gotten to pie a teacher in the face at our Hoops for Heart Assembly. Last year we decided to change that up and get a dunk tank. A few of the teachers graciously volunteered to sit aboard the dunk tank while students who raised over $100 got the chance to dunk them down!!

We do our best to have a lot of fun with this program, be looking for more information about this years program in January.
