Covert Avenue School students raised $10,500 for the American Heart Association through participation in the Kids Heart Challenge.
Led by physical education teacher Tim Smith, students in kindergarten through sixth grade learned about their hearts while helping others and raising money. According to the American Heart Association’s website, the Kids Heart Challenge prepares children for success through physical and emotional well-being.
Some of the school’s top fundraisers included fifth grader Tivanie Singhroy ($2,600), third grader Alyssa Gillen ($755), sixth grader Anthony Caliendo ($455), second grader Olivia Ally ($320) and kindergartners Jameson Briant and Luciana Silvagnoli ($110). Covert Avenue students led by Mr. Smith have raised more than $50,000 for the American Heart Association in just over seven years.
