Jump Rope for Heart
|Submitted on Fri, 03/09/2012 - 6:57pm.|
Students celebrated Jump Rope for Heart on the morning of March 2. Students gathered by grade level in our gymnasium for half an hour each to showcase their jump roping talents. Student fundraising efforts were recognized and all students were able to enjoy a “heart healthy” snack provided to our school by our PTO.
As a school we raised over $800.00 for the American Heart Association. The top six students who raised the most amount of money in their grade were: Michael Cortez, Alycia Castro, Gabe Hickey, Mallory Huhn, Kennedy Ansmits and Lydia Meyer. Depending on the amount they raised, students earned various prizes: water bottles, jump ropes, soccer balls, t-shirts, rocket launchers, etc.
Mrs. Bradley did a wonderful job encouraging physical fitness with our students throughout February and organizing both the fundraising and celebration.
