Ross Chakrian

Through “Heart to Heart,” Mr. Chakrian and Ms. Heisey will implement a heart rate monitoring program at Waverly Elementary School. The program will allow students to monitor their exercise intensity in a safe and individualized manner. Data collected by the monitors will be downloaded and viewed by teachers, parents, and students and will enable all parties to track student progress toward cardiovascular fitness goals. Analysis of the data will also be used to help students make interdisciplinary connections to English and math classes.
