    EKG Testing

    Thank you to the EKG testing Committee Chairs Deb Platou and Cathie Bucek, and the 250+ volunteers required to test Naperville North students. Their report follows:

    1,980 students were screened at the EKG event back in mid-November with 11 students needing further follow up. That is 72% of our student body and our goal was over 70% to be screened. We have the highest percentage of all the area schools that Young Hearts for Life Organization has worked with this year. In comparison, we had 59% at the last screening 2 years ago. The Boosters Club was kind enough to supply us with the funds ($200) to make stickers for the students who participated which was a huge hit with the kids. Thank you to all the parent volunteers (it takes over 250 volunteers to make the event happen), and H&S for the funds to provide snacks and lunch to the all-day volunteers. Cathie added that John Fiore’s goal is to have 100% of the students screened. He will request that the next screening day be a no field trip day. If your student was not screened, Young Hearts for Life screens at their office for $35.
