  • Hoops for Heart Facts of the Day:

    • When you go for a checkup, your doctor uses a stethoscope to listen carefully to your heart. A healthy heart makes a lub-dub sound with each beat. This sound comes from the valves shutting on the blood inside the heart.

    • Even though your heart is inside you, there is a cool way to know it's working from the outside. It's your pulse. You can find your pulse by lightly pressing on the skin anywhere there's a large artery running just beneath your skin. Two good places to find it are on the side of your neck and the inside of your wrist, just below the thumb.


  • Staff and students! We will be meeting out on the soccer fields to spell out # DRUG FREE during home room today.  Find your home room number posted on the field and fill in the white lines. Mr Ebanez will be using the drone to take our picture. Smile at the drone! Thank you for all your cooperation on this project. Brought to you by the TUPE Team!
