Jump Rope for Heart

Big image

Wow what an amazing first two weeks we have had kicking off our Jump Rope for Heart 2016 here at Nelson. Super Pup came to the school and got to play with the kids one morning. So far, our PE teachers have given away

  • 13 Dallas Mavericks tickets
  • 5 sets of Hurricane Harbor tickets to students for their online donations
  • A number of puppies that have been adopted from our puppy rescue center in PE.

It has been AMAZING!!!!!!!! Let’s not slow down now we still have the entire month of February. So far the two classes in the lead for the class prize is Mrs. Tyner in first with 390 and Mrs. Wilburn close behind with 309. These are just the online totals so far. The top class at the end will get a recess bag full of equipment just for their class.

We have raised $2255, and are close to our goal of $3000.

Heart fact: Your heart is about the size of two hands clasped together and a heart valve is about the diameter of a half dollar.

Kroger Store Card Fundraiser

Did you know that our campus can earn money each time you use your Kroger card? So far this year we have raised $316.98 in total donations, and this was done with just 63 families! Just imagine how much we would raise if half of our families had their Kroger cards linked to the L.A. Nelson PTA.

Please double check and make sure your card is registered. I thought mine was and it wasn't!

Click on the following to register your card and spread the word to your spouses and grandparents: https://www.kroger.com/communityrewards

The L.A. Nelson school code is 90039.
