Jump Rope for Heart

Submitted by angie.keisel on Wed, 04/20/2016 - 08:33

Yesterday we had our annual jump-a-thon kick-off assembly.  Students were sent home with an envelope to collect donations for the American Heart Association.  Last year our school donated $8,195!  Wow!  This money goes to people with sick hearts-infants, children and adults.  Our goal this year is to reach $10,000.  We can do this with everyone’s help!

The incentives are a bit different than they have been in the past.  This year, students will be working towards a school goal instead of an individual goal.  Each school wide goal that is met, all students will be receiving the same award-a “puppy” (similar to last year’s duckies) along with a lanyard.  The first goal is to reach $2,000.  This can happen if each student brings in $3.50.  Additional goals are listed on the forms that were sent home.

Envelope due date is Friday, April 29th.  The Jump-a-thon will also be held on that same day in the afternoon.
