Grandview students show they have heart

Students at Grandview School in Telford spent last month making the world a brighter place through a trio of healthy team events that displayed both their creativity and generosity.
Kids in kindergarten through third grade colored Valentines for residents at the nearby Four Oaks Nursing Home, who then judged the pictures and chose their top three. Third-grader Kaitlyn Goulds, 8, won first place; 9-year-old Sierra Clifford, also in third grade, earned second place; and second-grader Catlin Hoilman, 8, won third place.
The winners were awarded cash prizes from Four Oaks.
“I spent most of mine already,” said Goulds, who earned $50 for her first-place artwork. “I bought clothes and a (video) game.”
A school-wide poster contest was held in February as well to promote heart health. Students created posters of all sizes that recognized various ways to keep heart healthy. Winners were: Mackenzie Baldwin, first grade; Morgan Barkely, second grade; Caitlyn France, fourth grade; Paige France, sixth grade; Austin Brown, seventh grade; and Cheyane Fagan, eighth grade.
The entire school also took part in a fundraiser to raise money for the Ronald McDonald House last month. Students sold hearts for $1, raising a grand total of $849. Sandra Fox’s third grade class earned top honors for their fundraising efforts, bringing in the most money as a class — $156.
