PJMS Picture of the Week - April 2017

Port Jervis Middle School - Learning Healthy Living

April 12, 2017, PJMS, Port Jervis, NY - The Port Jervis Middle School participated in the American Heart Association’s Hoops for Heart program this year! Students learned how to keep their hearts healthy and reduce heart disease by exercising, eating healthy and living tobacco free. By partnering with the American Heart Association, our school receives complimentary PE equipment, lesson plans and heart healthy educational posters. Students worked together to raise donations to support heart disease research. For added incentive, students were given a goal of $500 in donations and told they would have a chance to play a Teacher vs. Student Basketball game. Students surpassed that goal and raised over $800!
The Teacher vs. Student Basketball game took place on Friday, March 31.
Final Scores:
7th grade game Champions: Teachers Team with a score of 44-29
8th grade game Champions: Teachers Team again with a score of 30-28
Special thank you to Ms. Roda and Mr. Dorn for organizing the event, Mr. Carlozzi for providing music and commentary, Mr. Decker for videotaping, and all who participated!
