Middle School Students Participate in American Heart Month by Knitting Red Hats for Newborns
Our middle school Science classes have joined volunteers from around the country to celebrate American Heart Month by knitting and crocheting red hats for babies born in February. The American Heart Association, in connection with The Children's Heart Foundation, sponsor "Little Hats, Big HeartsTM" which honors babies, moms, and heart healthy lives in a very special way. Supporters, including our middle school students, are knitting and crocheting red hats to be given out to thousands of babies during American Heart Month in order to empower moms to live heart healthy lives and to help their children do the same. Mrs. Hamilton, our middle school science teacher, started the project at St, Raymond to raise our students' awareness of heart health while at the same time participating in a fun and worthwhile cause. The project "Little Hats, Big HeartsTM" raises awareness about Congenital Heart Defects and heart health, provides resources, and inspires moms to take their family’s heart health to heart.
