Heart Healthy Challenge Assembly


The Healthy Heart Challenge at the Dansville Primary School was a HUGE SUCCESS thanks to our awesome faculty, children and community! The school made a common goal of raising 3,000 dollars to help families and children with heart conditions through the American Heart Association. We were lucky enough to have an amazing representative Ms. Ramona Englebrecht VP, Youth Market—NY & VT join us for our School Wide Event held in the High School Gym March 8th. As a school community we actually exceeded our goal raising $3,300.00 and we were so honored she could attend and encourage us!


In conjunction with the detailed program provided by the American Heart Association taught within the P.E. classes by our INCREDIBLE P.E. teacher Coach Marley Grimsley, we had some pretty silly incentives to meet our fundraising goals. With Teachers, Coach Grimsley and EVEN our School Principal Mr. Dan Dixon getting "spaghettied" for the top fundraisers in the building. We owe a huge thank you to all volunteers who agreed to have spaghetti dumped on their heads. We also need to thank the AMAZING High School technology students led by Mr. Kevin Geiger who built an unique spaghetti dump system that allowed the children to be successful. One more BIG thank you to Tracy Gregorius for helping with the organization of this before, during and after the assembly!
