Lower school students were greeted with another afternoon of great weather for this year’s Jump Rope for Heart event. Students in K-Gr. 5, as well as their teachers, could be seen having great fun jumping rope, high jumping onto soft mats, limboing, leaping over makeshift hurdles, crawling through obstacle courses, shooting basketball and other activities to “Celebrate Healthy Living,” the theme for this year’s event. Each grade level rotated to a different station for each activity to keep things running smoothly. Those who participated also had the option of writing a person’s name with chalk on the school blacktop and dedicating their activities to that person.
As always, donations proved to be an important part of Jump Rope for Heart, and nearly $2,400 has been raised for the American Heart Association.
