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.
They may not have met their school goal, but the kids at Meadowview Elementary School can be pretty proud of themselves, all the same.
Last week, students in grades 1-5 spent 45 minutes jumping rope. In doing so,they raised $16,000 for the American Heart Association.
