H.E.A.R.T. Martial Arts 2010 Fall Citizen Schools WOW! Performance

In addition to a short film showcasing all of their volunteer efforts over the semester the H.E.A.R.T. Martial Arts class and Citizen Schools students treated the Newark First Avenue families to a Martial Arts performance complete with board breaks!

The students "earn" their Martial Arts lessons by giving back to the community/world. The students choose each cause, the class votes and as a team they fight to make a difference! This past semester the students:

- Cleaned up 2 acres of land at the local Branch Brook Park.

- Helped the local Boys and Girls Club by teaching the Kindergarten through Fourth grade students the Martial Arts.

- Conducted a school wide can food drive for the New Jersey Food Bank resulting in collecting 730 pounds of food.

- Writing letters to cheer up the Soldiers
