This month in PE we will be supporting the American Heart Association and participating in Jump Rope for Heart. Our event date is February 6th, if you would like to come and watch your child jump, feel free to join us during their PE class time. Our goal this year is $5000.00, last year we raised over $7500.00!!! We have sent packets home with all the children. Please keep the money envelopes as long as possible; ask family and friends for donations. The easiest way to get donations is by going online to www.heart.org/jump and registering your son/daughter. Once you register, send out emails to friends and family asking for their support. Your child could collect all 6 ducks as a prize for their hard work. Other prizes and gifts will be handed out at a later time.
With any $5.00 donation your child will receive “Quacky”, who reminds us to eat healthy on a daily basis. IMPORTANT – send in the coupon, not the money envelope, with your son/daughter (this is done on the honor system). A $5.00 ONLINE donation will allow your child to get “Ninja”, he reminds us to kick out smoking. “Mr. Cool” duck can be received by your child if they get $75.00 in ONLINE donations. “Mr. Cool” reminds us to exercise to have a healthy heart. There are other ducks that can be collected as well along with thank you gifts.
We have also put up an honor/memory wall in the gym this year. If your child knows someone who has had a sick heart they can bring in $1.00. We will fill out a heart and put it on the wall in honor or memory of that particular person. The money raised will also be donated to the American Heart Association at the end of our event!
We appreciate all your help and support with this fundraiser!
