Maplewood students are awesome Heart Heroes! In honor of the 36th Anniversary of the American Heart Association, Maplewood Intermediate School set a goal of $7,000.01 to raise in their Jump Rope for Heart Program. Last year, in just 2 weeks, the Maplewood school community doubled their goal by raising $7,000. This year they surpassed their goal again and raised over $9,000!

Students were invited to participate in a special event before school on 2 various mornings.  Maplewood’s Physical Education Teachers, Mr. Slovak, Mr. Lauria and Ms. Gross conducted this exciting program.   Over 150 students attended and jumped in various activities.

Congratulations to all Maplewood students who participated in their annual Jump Rope for Heart Program and thank you Maplewood school community for your generosity!
