Jump Rope for Heart Wrap-Up
Our event was a blast this year. There were over 15 centers set up in the gym for the students to choose between. They could choose their center and switch to a new one at their wish. There was an obstacle course, the rock wall, a Just Dance party, and of course, various forms of jump ropes. Those are just a few examples of the fun! Each grade level was in the gym for about an hour to celebrate Jump Rope for Heart.
This week, we had our wrap-up/celebration assembly for Jump Rope for Heart. The top 8 fundraisers got to toss a pie in the face of a teacher, and I was dressed up as Super Pup all day. Lots of laughs and smiles on Thursday!
See below for some photos from our Jump Rope for Heart event.
Have a great spring break!
PS. I'm expecting the Thank-You gifts to arrive shortly after spring break. I'll get them out as soon as I can sort through them.
These hearts represent people that our students wanted to jump in honor or in memory of.
These students are doing the challenge at the Hoppity Hop center. Can you bounce on a hoppity hop and hit the balloon back and forth with a friend?
Long Jump Rope
Here is a student trying to jump on a pogo ball inside a long jump rope. I love how the kids find ways to challenge themselves!
