Jump Rope for Heart News
Thank you to everyone that signed up to participate in this year's JRFH event. Also, a big thank you to the families that have decided to raise funds for the American Heart Association. The AHA uses these funds to:
- Educate students on the importance of heart-healthy habits
- That being physically active is fun
- Support cardiovascular research and education in our community
On line fundraising is the most efficient way to help. Not only is it simple for you but it helps me tremendously with the large amount of paper work. If you are able, please use the online tool. Just go to www.heart.org/jump Make sure to register with our school. If the online method isn't for you please turn all cash into checks made payable to the American Heart Association. All correspondences should be marked with your child's name and class code and placed in the JRFH box in the Great Hall. For families that are fundraising the donations are due by March 5th.
Students are now forming their jumping groups. These forms are available on the JRFH display in the Great Hall. These forms were due by today, Tuesday, February 17th. There will be many students who do not sign up for a team. I will group all of those students..
We are jumping on Tuesday, February 24th. All students should be prepared with their sneakers. PK, K and first grades will jump during the school day from 12-1:15. Second -fifth grades will participate from 3:15- 5:30. All students should be picked up at the gym parking lot entrance at 5:30.
We are looking forward to this year's event. It looks like it's going to be a great day. Thank you to the Lafayette community for your support of this community service project. If you have any questions or would like to volunteer please contact Ms. McClure. firstname.lastname@example.org.
