Get Ready for Hoops for Heart!
Hoops for Heart flyers were sent home prior to Thanksgiving break on how to set up an account for online giving. We already have a few students set up and collecting! Once your student has the account set up, it becomes time for her to gather and form a 5-7 person basketball team if she wishes to participate in the tournament. There is a mandatory $10 team donation for the American Heart Association that will be due to Coach Tuten prior to play. Also, all teams must have players from the same grade level and may be co-ed. Remember, "it takes heart to be a hero!"
