Jump Rope for Heart
It is that time of year again. Jump Rope for Heart sponsored by the American Heart Association (AHA) is ready to jump off! Jump Rope for Heart will take place during your students regularly scheduled PE times during the week of March 2nd-6th, 2015.
The minimum donation to receive a thank you gift is $5 but any donation is welcome. All donations made at Welcome Elementary go directly to the AHA. I will be sending home sponsorship envelopes with directions for your students to use for donations.
Parents please keep the donation envelopes at home until your students have PE during the week of March 2nd (For example: if your student has PE on Tuesday then their Jump Rope for Heart day is Tuesday March 3). Please remember all students participate in the Jump Rope for Heart activities during their regularly scheduled PE classes so please dress accordingly. Only the students who donate will receive thank you gifts. Thank you in advance for your donation and participation in this year’s Jump Rope for Heart!
