February is National Heart Month, and the Newton  Community School District has celebrated the event for more than 25 years, raising thousands of dollars for the American Heart Association.  

Students will be seeking donations from community members throughout the month  to fight heart disease and stroke through research and education. During P.E. classes, students will learn about the heart, its function and how to keep it healthy. Students also will jump rope to keep their hearts healthy.
