All cash or check donations (payable to: American Heart Association) can be given to your student’s PE teacher. For a $10 or more donation students can receive a “Hoops for Heart” t-shirt. If interested, students should bring their donation to their PE teacher to request a t-shirt. Many individuals and families have benefited from the efforts of the American Heart Association in their fight again heart related issues. We ask that you consider the effects that heart disease has and will continue to have on our lives and do your part in making a difference. We thank you all in advance for your continued help!

E-cigarettes are battery-powered electronic nicotine delivery systems. Also called electronic nicotinevaporizes (PV), e-cigarettes are a new way for smokers to get their nicotine—quickly. These products are marketed heavily towards young adults, particularly through the use of social media and at mall kiosks. These products are touted as a “safer” alternative to smoking, and as a way to either quit smoking cigarettes, or to smoke in places cigarette smoking is not allowed. However, these products are not yet regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and no rigorous scientific studies have shown that they are safe for use.
