LB Middle School Raises More than $700 for Heart Health

Long Beach Middle School students and staff members collectively provided more than $700 in donations to the American Heart Association. The Physical Education Department conducted a basketball shooting contest to raise money and awareness for the AHA’s mission to build healthier lives.

Physical Education classes collected $306 through their efforts, and Aiden White was the overall school winner. Class tournaments took place during the week of Feb. 8, and the champions from each group competed in the final rounds on Feb. 24.

Additionally, Middle School staff members raised  $444 for the AHA’s Go Red for Women initiative on Feb. 5, which was observed as National Wear Red Day. Congratulations to everyone in the Middle school for supporting such a worthy cause and organization!
