The Pittston Area Primary Center raised $1,325 for the American Heart Association as part of the annual “Heart to Heart” schoolwide project. The check was presented to Kim Gear from the American Heart Association.

The first and second-grade students were sponsored by family members to jump rope and exercise during gym class. In addition, chances for gift baskets and gifts were sold during school events.

This annual schoolwide project began in February. Activities included learning about the chambers of the heart, an assembly on easy daily exercises from head to toe and a display of paper chain links that represents men and women in our families who are affected with heart disease.

The project will conclude with scheduled family walks around the bus lanes.
