Jump Rope For Heart Program Comes to Pleasant Union

We made good progress toward our goal of $5000 this week but will repeat the letter from the local Jump Rope for Heart Association sent out last week. Please consider participating in this most worthy cause.

Letter from the Jump Rope for Heart Association:

We kicked off our Jump Rope For Heart program this past week and our school's event is right around the corner! We are thrilled to participate as we work together to raise money for the American Heart Association and learn how nutrition and being active can help us live longer, healthier lives.

First things first! We have an easy way for you to raise money ONLINE by having your very own fundraising page. Simply click on this link to go to the Pleasant Union Elem Jump Rope for Heart site!

Pleasant Union Fundraising Page.

You may already be hearing your student talk about the Zoo Crew Ecard Challenge! This is a creative way for your student to choose a heart healthy habit to start doing today! By using the Zoo Crew Ecard Challenge your student will challenge others to do the same and help them reach their fundraising goal.

Once you have your fundraising page, login to your HeadQuarters to get started.

1. Take the Zoo Crew Ecard Challenge and pass it on to 10 friends! Your student will earn their very own Rory’s Zoo Crew Badge! Your teacher has them now.

2. Take the Zoo Crew Daily Mission to unlock cool things in your expedition!

Thank you so much for supporting our school and the American Heart Association. We know you can do this!


Legislative News of Note

If you haven't already done so be sure to familiarize yourself with the proposed Wake County Public School System Budget and the Superintendent Jim Merrill’s letter that explains it.

Also of importance is to become familiar the NC House Bill 13 and its potential affects on the students and staffing of schools in North Carolina, including Pleasant Union. President Rick Childs has posted a helpful article on the PTA Facebook page that explains the bill. He has also posted two videos that explain the potential affects to our students. If you have further questions please contact PTA President Rick Childs or Principal Kevin Biles
