With Valentine's Day just around the corner, send that special someone a card and a carnation for just one dollar. Continuing this week, orders will be taken during lunch periods. Deliveries will be made by TOPS love bugs on Valentine's Day morning.

TOPS is sponsoring a Valentine's Dance and Open Gym this Friday, February 8th from 7 to 9 pm. Tickets are $5.00, include snacks and drinks, and will be sold during all lunch periods. And just as a friendly reminder, absolutely no tickets will be sold at the door.

February is National Heart Month
Your heart is a muscular organ that is at the center of your circulatory system.
It is vital to your health and nearly everything that goes on in your body. Without the heart's pumping action, blood can't move throughout your body.
Your heart is said to be the hardest working muscle in your body. Although it is only the size of a fist and weighs about 8-12 ounces, it beats about 100,000 times per day, Yes 100,000 times a day….Preventing heart disease means making smart choices now that will pay off the rest of your life.
So remember to be heart healthy means eating healthy foods, maintaining your weight and engaging in regular exercise (at least 60 minutes a day). These healthy habits will keep your heart in good shape.
