Fabyan Elementary Students Raise $10K for Hoops for Heart
Fabyan Elementary School students — with the help of their community — teamed up against heart disease and raised more than $10,000 for the American Heart Association through the charity event Hoops for Heart. The experience, which emulates the District’s Vision of being collaborative and productive citizens, also teaches students to develop heart-healthy habits while being physically active.

With the help of Fabyan PE teacher Alex Serluco, participants in grades K-5 began raising money in February to benefit Hoops for Heart. Students far surpassed their original goal to raise $8,000, according to Fabyan Principal Lauri Haugen.

“I am really a proud principal! They far surpassed Mr. Serluco’s and my expectations,” Haugen said. “We are the smallest school in the district, and we clearly have a community with a big heart!”

Serluco organized a 3-on-3 basketball tournament as the culminating event for the fundraiser. Students in 4th and 5th grades were invited to choose their own teams and register for the tournament, held in the FES gymnasium after school. The $5 registration fee also went toward Hoops for Heart.

This event was one that all FES students participated in, and the school is extremely grateful to the community for supporting the students’ cause, Serluco said.

“Heart disease is the No. 1 cause of death in the United States, so what we are doing at Fabyan will hopefully help change that statistic!” Serluco added. “All of the money that we have raised will be going to research and medical technology to help people who have heart disease. Thank you again for all your support!
