We have a special incentive at our school. If we can get 50% of our students registered and taking the healthy challenges, we will receive an additional $500 to purchase new PE equipment.

The Hudsonville community benefitted…

…and we went bowling because of your generosity!

Excitement for the opportunity to help others grew quickly as the PE teachers announced that the PE CARES Food Drive would begin. Some students bought food items using their own money. Other students collected food items from their neighbors. Families worked together to gather food from their pantries or road trip to the local grocery stores. 

In the end, 738 food items were collected by the students and families from our classroom. These donations were added to all of the food items gathered by the other classrooms in our school. Altogether, 4,817 food items were donated to LOVE Inc. and made available to the Hudsonville community! 🙂 

Thank you for making this food drive a HUGE success! 🙂

Check out the slideshow of our bowling bash…

As you can see, it was a LOT of fun…thanks again! 🙂

Equipment for GT.  The Kids Heart Challenge Fundraiser is done ONLINE (see link below) and will be open from February 6 until February 28.

When your child joins Kids Heart Challenge (formerly Jump Rope for Heart) they will hear from kids with special hearts and raise funds to help those born with heart defects.  Students learn about taking care of their own heart through fun challenges and activities for physical, social and emotional health.

Get online and register your student today:
