Red Out Day

On Thursday, February 12th we will be supporting Wautoma Red Out For Heart by wearing red or black & red.  RED OUT is the American Heart Association’s program that promotes learning the warning signs and risk factors of heart disease and stroke. Last year your school played a role in raising over $1500.00 for the Wautoma area School Districts Red Out for the American Heart Association!  Thank you for making a difference!  This year students/families are able to purchase Red or Black T-Shirts in honor or memory of someone they know who has been affected by cardiovascular disease. Everyone will then be encouraged to wear their T-shirts to school on Thursday, February 12th and to the Wautoma High School Girls basketball game that night. Students, Families, Friends…Everyone is invited to the game!
