Jump For Heart 

At West Dover Grades 3-5 will participate with the "Jump for Heart" program. Kids can focus in on their eating choices by selecting more fruits and vegetables and make efforts to stay active.  Some students are collecting donations before the event by reaching out to friends and family. Reach out for more information on donations, HeadQuarter account, or Zoo Crew E-card Challenge. Parents are invited to celebrate with their child February 15 & 16th.  Come and take pictures, turn a long rope for the students or join us in jumping for a great cause. Thank you for your part in being a HEART HERO!
