Jump with Jill!

JUMP WITH JILL LIVE TOUR PRESENTED BY MEIJER ROCKS MIDWEST SCHOOLS. Produce for kids raises funds to bring nutrition education program to local schools.

The world's only rock and roll nutrition show Jump with Jill is poised to rock schools across the Midwest this spring thanks to the efforts of Produce for Kids hosted by Meijer. The consumption-based donations collected from sales of participating produce suppliers this past fall raised enough funds to provide Jump with Jill at no cost to 25 schools this spring.

Jump with Jill is armed with catchy songs, upbeat dance moves, and a hip wardrobe to engage kids on the subject of health. Students leave the assembly empowered to eat better. Meijer offers a gorgeous and affordable selection of fruits and vegetables. United against junk food, we will be victorious!

About Jump with Jill

The world's only rock & roll nutrition show uses music and dance to celebrate healthy habits by transforming nutrition education into a live concert. Created by a Registered Dietitian and professional musician, the show uses singable anthems guaranteed to get students moving and learning about healthy habits.

Asset Builder of the Week - Bonding to School - Asset #24 - Jarrett Bird

Hi! My name is Jarrett Bird and I won asset builder of the week for Bonding to School back in September. I bond to Frank Nicholas in many ways. I was on safety patrol for the first quarter to help keep students safe. I played basketball both in fourth and fifth grade. I finish my homework each week to get good grades. I bring my mom to some of the family nights during the year. You can bond to school, too, by participating in activities and caring about school each day.
