In just two days, students in grades 1-5 at Meadowview Elementary School raised $13,000 for the American Heart Association through the annual Jump Rope for Heart event. On Friday, students in grades 4-5 stayed active for half an hour, going from station to station jumping rope or using hula hoops. The idea, said physical education teacher Joe McCarthy, is to keep their heart rate up for that whole period. On the walls hang more than 300 posters the students made for Jump Rope for Heart.
