During the month of February, otherwise known as “Heart Healthy Month”, Sea Cliff students learned all about their very important organ known as the heart, the blood vessels leading to and from their hearts, and their circulatory system. While jumping rope and engaging in a number of fun activities including the obstacle course and shooting or dribbling baskets, they also learned how their hearts work.
