Mayfield Elementary students jump for their hearts and help save lives

January 25, 2014 Students at Mayfield Elementary are jumping at the chance to fight heart disease and stroke, our nation’s No. 1 and No. 4 killers. On Jan. 31 we will host our fifth annual Jump Rope for Heart event to raise money for the American Heart Association,which funds lifesaving heart and stroke research and community and educational programs for our youth. Over the past 4 years we have raised $38,321. We would like to hit the five year $50,000 dollar mark. That means this year we need to raise $11,679!! Jump Rope for Heart teaches students how physical fitness benefits the heart and shows them that volunteering can be a fun and positive experience for the whole community. The need to educate children about the importance of physical activity couldn't be timelier. According to recent studies, about one-third of children ages 2 to 19 are overweight and obese. According to the American Heart Association. By including physical activity into their daily routines, kids can significantly reduce the onset and burden of heart disease. By raising money through Jump Rope for Heart, we are preventing heart disease and obesity for the next generation of Americans. Kids are literally jumping into a heart healthier life while becoming passionate about raising money for other kids with sick hearts.

Mayfield Elementary School's KIDS CARE

January 24, 2014 The school's KIDS CARE CLUB is sponsoring a supply drive for local animal shelters and animal rescue organizations. Over 60 students in grades kindergarten through six recently attended a KIDS CARE CLUB meeting in the school library that was also attended by some special guests. Karen Kiaunis, from "Helping Paws Rescue", introduced Candy (a cat) and Gigi (a dog). Karen and her furry friends received a very warm welcome from MES students, who then volunteered to make and hang posters, write and make morning P.A. announcements, and collect and store donations for the supply drive. The following items are being accepted at the elementary school through Feb. 14: old clean towels and blankets, paper towels, dryer sheets, cotton balls, Q-Tips, laundry detergent, dish detergent, kitten kibble, dog kibble, canned dog food, cat and dog toys. No dog toys made of rawhide or rope are being accepted, as they pose a health risk for dogs.
