Freedom Elementary School Intramurals
The intramural program for elementary school students is supported by fees charged to student participants. A portion of the fees is used to pay the coaches. All coaches are WFPS personnel or other qualified adults.
Parents need to pick up their student(s) in a timely manner after the activity concludes. Leaders will assist students that need to call for a ride or to check on status of a ride.
Jump Rope for Heart - March 8-27
Parents & Guardians:
We are very excited to introduce Kids Heart Challenge at Freedom Elementary this year. This program is the new-and-improved Jump Rope For Heart program our school has participated in for many years with the American Heart Association. Kids Heart Challenge encompasses all the things we loved about Jump Rope For Heart but the biggest difference is the heart healthy challenge this program encourages students (and families!) to take. The challenge is simple: students select one of the three challenges listed below using our school’s event website http://www2.heart.org/goto/freedomwestfargo or the Kids Heart Challenge app. It is our hope that by committing to one of these challenges to take care of their hearts it will turn into a lifelong habit that will carry into adulthood. The challenges include:
- Drink water over sugary beverages
- Be physically active for 60 minutes each day
- Do one kind deed every day
Simple, right? All your student needs to do is select a challenge and he/she will receive a Kids Heart Challenge glow-in-the-dark wristband to serve as their daily reminder to keep taking the challenge each day. If your student wants to collect life-saving donations to support the American Heart Association’s mission and earn some cool thank-you gifts, you can easily do that right there from your personalized Kids Heart Challenge website and app! So easy! Your student will receive a collection envelope on Friday, March 8th – be sure to look out for this.
The American Heart Association knows our school is taking this challenge seriously but to make the biggest impact in our students’ lives, we need them to commit to the challenge.
The American Heart Association has offered our school $500 to purchase new PE/Recess equipment to help our students get active if we can get at least 50% of our students registered to take the Kids Heart Challenge. This means we need 270 students to register by March 27th!
Will you help us?
Registering to take the Kids Heart Challenge is simple:
- Go to our school’s Kids Heart Challenge website: http://www2.heart.org/goto/freedomwestfargo AND/OR Download the Kids Heart Challenge app on your smart phone or tablet
- Following the registration instructions & select your heart-healthy challenge
