Jump Rope for Heart

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Your children will be bringing home a flyer detailing the upcoming American Heart Association’s JUMP ROPE FOR HEART campaign.  Your child is invited to participate and have this opportunity to engage in community service by raising money to fund lifesaving research and programs.  Keep in mind this is NOT a mandatory fundraiser for students.  If your child would like to participate, please complete the permission form that is attached to the collection envelope that is coming home.  Regardless of fundraising efforts, all students will have a heart healthy celebration party during Physical Education class the week of February 23, 2015.  The purpose of the celebration is to teach children the importance of keeping their heart healthy, and jumping rope is an excellent way to achieve this goal.


Thank you for your support!

Mr. Binkley and Mr. Young, Conestoga Physical Education Teachers




CORRECTION on the flyer:  Because the 16th is a scheduled day off, the teachers would like to change the deadline for permission slips from the 16th to the 23rd.  This gives families more time to consider fundraising for AHA.
