Utica Middle School Students Take Heart
On Friday, February 8, 2019, #UASCS Middle School students asked "How do you build a heart-healthy school and community?" Students who recently participated in the American Heart Challenge, a fundraiser for the American Heart Association, answered that question with their actions. The scholars collected donations from family and friends to sponsor their participation in a school-wide walkathon in which they were encouraged to stay active by walking, dancing, hula hooping, and jumping rope. If you were not asked to sponsor a student, additional donations can still be made to support the #UASMS Healthy Heart Challenge on heart.org/americanheartchallenge. Check out highlights of this community-enhancing event captured by our school’s very own Drone Team.
