Mrs Vesel as Zoo Crew PenguinDid you know that for every $50 raised for the American Heart Association a person's life can be saved?  This amount is the cost of training someone in CPR.  Our Winterquist K-6 students participated in Jump Rope and Hoops for Heart on April 4th to do just that... SAVE LIVES. 

The students were given two goals to reach: 1) Save 240 Lives by raising $12,000 online so they could see Mrs. Vesel dress up as one of the Zoo Crew members, and 2) Save 500 lives overall ($25,000 total). 

The students met their first goal and Mrs. Vesel had to dress up as Finnley Chillerton Penguin from the Zoo Crew which was the theme for this years event.  Our overall goal of $25,000 is so very close to being met.  With some extra little help from you (online donation s only)...we can save those 500 lives and the students will then get to throw whip cream pies at Mrs. Vesel! 

Below is the link where you can help the students reach their goal!
