Jump Rope for Heart is now known as the Kids Heart Challenge. It will be held on Feb 14th and Feb 15th based on the half day schedule. In the event, if we are closed due to weather event, it will be held during the regular PE classes. All students are included even if they are not able to raise the funds or if they do not know how to jump. There are three ways to donate: a) online- at heart.org/kidsheartchallenge (info on how to do this is on the site, b) check--made payable to the American Heart Association and c) cash- no pennies please. For the online donations-the online donation report must be included in the donation envelope before the donations are sent. The donation envelopes will be sent out the week of Jan 29th in the Wednesday folder. For students raising monies early, their character gifts will given when their donation gifts arrive.
