WESTWOOD, N.J. -- Staff and students at Westwood Regional Middle School (WRMS) threw themselves into commemorating American Heart Month in February.
Faculty participated in Go Red for Women, which advocates for more research and swifter action for women’s heart health, while both faculty and students purchased red paper hearts from the Helping Hands Club and displayed them in the cafeteria.
Students jumped rope in physical education classes as part of Jump Rope for Heart, a program that empowers children to improve their own health and help other kids with heart-health issues.
The Student Council helped get everyone involved by sponsoring pajama day and a bake sale. All combined, the events raised $852.97, which was donated to the American Heart Association.
