O'Fallon Progress

School Improvement Day set for April 28

Moye Elementary School raised $14,610 for the American Heart Association as part of the school’s Jump Rope for Heart campaign. The top five collectors raised a combined $2,160. The top collectors were, from left, Zachary Horsens, Nikolas Sova, Ethan Nelson, Naytin Sova and Tanner Hollerich. Over the past 12 years heart disease death rates have fallen an amazing 30 percent No other disease has dropped like that. Experts say the reductions can be attributed to: Fewer people smoking and being exposed to second hand smoke; lifesaving scientific research breakthroughs; changes in laws to build healthier environments; and increased awareness about healthy living. The American Heart Association plays a key role in each of those efforts. Jump Rope for Heart benefits the AHA and also helps students learn about heart health, leading an active life and about giving back to others.
