Kids Heart Challenge  


Every year Mrs. Merritt's and Mr. Westervelt's students participate in an event sponsored by the American Heart Association to help kids learn the value of community service, help other children with special hearts, and learn how to develop heart-healthy habits while being physically active.  This fundraising event is not to raise money for our school community, but to participate in a community service project that benefits others!  Dorchester students have helped raise almost $40,000.00!!
