Hoops for Heart

We are very excited to team up once again with the American Heart Association to bring Hoops For Heart to our school. Caroline Middle School students are raising money for the American Heart Association from now until March 2nd.

Students who raise a minimum of $10 will be able to stay after school on February 27th for a Hoops for Heart Tournament. Money for this event must be turned in by February 20th so that we have time to schedule the teams. They may either form a team to play or stay after to watch. Car riders may be picked up at 5:15 or students may bring an after school activity form to ride the activity bus.

Additionally, students can pay $3 to come and watch a student/faculty game on March 2nd. This event will take place during school. Money will be collected during lunches the week of the event.

During this time, students will team up with the Monster Scare Squad to learn about their hearts and healthy decision making all while having fun, being physically active and helping others! Join our team and be a HEART HERO!

Anti-Bullying Walk Invitation

Bully Walk

We have successfully completed our fall fitness testing.

Students were given an opportunity to work on a project for three days in class to tie in what they learned about the 5 components of fitness. They were able to glean the information from class discussions, powerpoints, worksheets and their google classroom.

October is National Bullying Prevention Month. In health, we will be tackling the topic of bullying. The students will be given an opportunity to show what they have leaned through a project. All information given to them will be posted in their google classroom.

The school will also host the 7th annual Anti_Bully Walk. The permission form and the money for the anti-bully walk is due October 17th. The cost of the anti-bully walk is $10, students will receive a t-shirt and entry into the girl basketball game. The walk will be after school on October 26th from 3-4:30pm.
