Students at Cridersville Elementary School will be celebrating their valentines a little bit differently this week, with a focus on heart health and awareness.

Jump Rope for Heart is a fundraising program that schools throughout the country are getting involved in to help educate youth about the importance of exercise and heart health.

“It’s heart month. It’s Valentine’s Day, so it all kind of goes together,” Physical education teacher and guidance counselor Jill Stubbs said.

Students attended an assemby dedicated to the event on Friday, and were each given information and a heart to decorate in reminder of the fundraiser. All of the hearts decorated will be on display in the school’s front window.

Students will be asking friends and family for donations throughout the next few weeks, which will benefit the American Heart Association.

Stubbs said the school’s goal is to raise $1,500 in proceeds.
