Jump Rope For Heart

Mr. Kennedy sent home packets to all K-3 students this week that includes information about our Jump Rope For Heart, a national fundraising program that promotes physical activity, heart healthy living, and community service to children.


JRFH teaches students how to take care of their hearts while they experience the joy of giving back to their community. All money raised through this program goes to the American Heart Association.


Jump Rope for Heart will take place the week of February 8th. Students in Kindergarten through 3rd Grade will be working hard during PE class while raising money to help students throughout the country who suffer from different heart diseases.


The last day donations can be made is February 19th. If you have any questions, you can contact Mr. Kennedy.

Six Flags Read to Succeed

The Six Flags Read to Succeed program has started! If you would like your child to participate, they will need to fill out the Student Reading Log that went home with your children & record 6 hours (360 minutes) of reading by Friday, February 19th. These forms need to be turned in to your child's classroom teacher upon completion. Each child who returns their reading log will receive a ticket to Six Flags Great America! Happy Reading! Remember, reading on MyOn counts as time reading, too!
