We Are Jumping For Hearts

Keep the Primary Alive in Healthy Habits


Our assembly this past Wednesday was the kick off for the Jump Rope for Heart event that we hold annually in our gym. Mrs. Monson and Mrs. Stauber conduct an awesome time for the children along with many volunteers who join in the fun. The event is the centerpiece of fitness in February. Thanks for all of your support and cooperation. We are scheduled to jump on February 16th, next Thursday.

724 Cans-we were souper!!!!

Many thanks to all of the families who took the time and effort to donate canned goods, including lots of soup, to our latest event to support those less fortunate than us. The Falcons smoked the Patriots, at least by the number of votes to win. The game certainly was an entertaining way to spend a Sunday evening. Thanks 4th graders for all of the work you did in picking up the cans, counting the cans, and packing them up.
