Jump Rope For Heart

We have started our Jump Rope For Heart campaign! We kick started the event with a skipping demonstration by Synergy! The skippers, including our own Emily A., Jessica L, Rachel, Lana,Lisa and Ms. Fawkes, were fantastic!! You can watch the video on our school website.

We also had a visit from Mikayla, the little girl that was born with half a heart. Thanks to the help of the research by doctors and scientists which is funded by the Heart and Stroke Foundation, she has had a number of operations to help her live. It is great to know that the fund raising the students do goes to such a worthy cause.

Our goal is to raise $8000 this year.

The students receive a thank you prize depending on how much they raise. On the envelope you can see the prize for each level (the prizes are not a draw; if they earn the amount stated they will receive that prize.) Note that this is different from previous years - you win the prize for the amount you've raised and NOT all the prizes for the lower levels.

There are some bonus prizes!

  • Just register online and you will automatically receive a free $5.00 Kick Start pledge, plus you will earn a skipping rope - just for registering online! If all students in the school registered on line, that would give us over $1900, just like that!!

  • If you get to $100.00 and $250.00 on line you will earn gift cards to Chapters.

  • Also, Mr. Franceschini will take the top two fund raisers, and a friend each, out for lunch!!

 Thank you for supporting the Jump Rope for Heart Event! We will skip all day on Friday April 17th. Students should bring back their pledge envelopes that day as well as a water bottle and running shoes as they will have be very active. We will send home the schedule so that you may come and join your child's class in the gym if you would like - all welcome, including wee ones!
