South Jefferson Elementary Exceeds Their "Hoops for Heart" Goal of $10,000
Congratulations to our students for raising over $13,700 for the American Heart Association's "Hoops for Heart"!!! As part of their celebration, the students earned extra P.E. classes, a movie, asking their teachers to dress up as a favorite character, homework passes, the opportunity to throw a pie in the face of a teacher of their choice AND the huge payoff: our nurse, Kelley Henry, shaved her head in front of the entire school and donated her hair to "Locks of Love". The students were also informed that they had raised the most money for "Hoops for Heart" in the state of West Virginia! We are proud of all of our students and thank our community and families for their support as well! Well done!

The brave teachers who agreed to allow a student to throw a pie in their face. So funny!
