St Rita Wins American Heart Association Challenge
In order to keep children healthy and active, the American Heart Association developed a new initiative, the Heart Walk & Run Child Health Challenge.
The American Heart Association selected 25 local schools, including St. Rita School, to participate and asked them to make a video showing why they could use new PE equipment. Mr. Mutrie created a video with help from the entire school. Four winners were chosen out of the 25 video submissions and WE WERE ONE OF THEM!

Common Core Standards
The Common Core State Standards define the rigorous skills and knowledge in English Language Arts and Mathematics that need to be effectively taught and learned for students to be ready to succeed academically in credit-bearing, college-entry courses and in workforce training programs.
These standards have been developed to be:
•Fewer, clearer, and higher, to best drive effective policy and practice;
•Aligned with college and work expectations, so that all students are prepared for success upon graduating from high school;
•Inclusive of rigorous content and applications of knowledge through higher-order skills, so that all students are prepared for the 21st century;
•Internationally benchmarked, so that all students are prepared for succeeding in our global economy and society; and
•Research and evidence-based.
Here is more information on the Standards:
