5th-8th Grade Little Chieftain Jump Ropers Perform at Homecoming

The 5th-8th Grade Little Chieftain Jump Ropers performed at Homecoming between games Friday night. These students have worked extremely hard at perfecting some old tricks as well a learning new ones. Many of our students have been involved with the Creek Nation Jump Rope Program for five or more years. This program, led by Scott Robinson, has helped create healthy lifestyle awareness for our students. Monday, February 8, the 3rd-4th Jump Rope students will perform at the Junior High Basketball game here at Wetumka. Come out and support our basketball players as well as jump ropers.
