A Successful Event

Thank you to everyone for taking part in our 3rd annual Jump Rope for Heart.  We couldn't have asked for a more gorgeous day! Our students jumped their little hearts out as they rotated through 7 different stations. They got their blood pumping, they learned the importance of taking care of their hearts and they raised money for an important cause.

As of Friday, we have already raised $6,597!  We have clearly surpassed our goal of $5,000.  We will be accepting donations until Friday, March 3rd, so if you didn't get a chance to contribute and would like to, you can either join our team online or can send in a donation to school.  

Thank you to the many parents who were able to come and join in on this special day.  It was great to have so much help at the station, water filling bottles, set up, clean up, etc.  A huge thank you to Coach Joey for preparing our students and planning up all of the stations, the teachers for supporting this event, the Friendly Fifth Graders who assisted throughout the day and to all of our parents and students who supported the event and the American Heart Association.  It would call this one a great success for all!

In an effort to decrease the time commitment we ask of our families, we have recently cut one shift from both the morning and afternoon slots.

Are you talking about school?

I know you receive a lot of communication about how you can be involved in your child’s education through volunteering at school, but even more important is how involved you are at home. Volunteering in the classroom is wonderful, but research shows that supporting your child’s education at home is even more important.
