Jump Rope for Heart

Dear Parent/Guardian,

We are thrilled to be supporting the American Heart Association to help teach our students and families how to take care of their hearts through the Jump Rope For Heart program.

Students will be participating in Jump Rope for Heart Activities during P.E. Classes from January 16th - January 26th  Donations will be collected through February 14th.

 What does your child get out of participating?

YOUR CHILD learns about the importance of the heart-how it works, and how to take care of it: With the educational programs from the American Heart Association, our students learn how the heart works, how exercise affects their hearts and how to stay FIT FOR LIFE! Approximately 80 percent of the funds raised go directly to the mission, funding extensive research efforts, heart education and programs to help us all live healthier lives.

YOUR CHILD reaches out to friends and family: Our safe online tool makes it easy for your child to set up a web page and send emails to support their fundraising efforts and share life-saving information. The new app also makes it easy to text friends and family to join their campaign.  When your kids talk about their reasons for participating (such as lost loved one or a family history of heart disease), it helps them connect the dots to a healthier life (and might inspire others).

YOUR CHILD feels good for making a difference in people’s lives! Funds raised support the American Heart Association’s research and education initiatives that save lives in our community. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of all Americans and more people die of heart disease than all forms of cancer combined. The American Heart Association is second only to the U.S. government in funding research in heart disease and stroke.  Additionally, the school earns money for PE equipment so we can keep our kids MOVING!
