Rossman Among Top 10 Missouri Schools to Support AHA
By: Communications Manager Sarah Meyer
The American Heart Association recently named Rossman among the top 10 Missouri schools raising funds through the association’s “Jump Rope for Heart” and “Hoops for Heart” fundraisers in 2016-2017.
Last February, more than 150 Rossman students in grades 2 through 6 participated in the events, raising $11,790. The School has supported Jump Rope and Hoops for Heart for over 25 years, raising more than $170,000 for heart research and health education.
Co-coordinators for the events are physical education teachers Larry Huusko and Jenna Lucas, who were presented with the AHA’s Mission Impact Award in 2014 for their commitment to the annual fundraisers and for advocating for the health and wellness of Rossman’s students.
Rossman School, nestled on a 20-acre campus in Creve Coeur, is an independent preparatory school for students in Junior Kindergarten (four years old) through Grade 6. The school’s mission is to provide a strong, well-balanced education in a nurturing school community committed to excellence. Dedicated to developing personal, nurturing relationships with each child, Rossman’s experienced educators provide a solid foundation in academics, athletics and arts while emphasizing strong character development and leadership skills.
