7th Grade LAW Raises Funds for AHA

We are proud to announce that our 7th grade LAW students and their parents raised over $1700 for the American Heart Association by participating in the Hoops for Heart program. Hoops for Heart is a fun event where students play basketball, learn about their heart, and how to keep it healthy, while raising money for the American Heart Association. Special thanks to Mr. Kyle Reeves for organizing and leading this event.
