Once again our GT families have risen to the occasion. You have all surprised us with your kind hearts and donations. The GT fam has raised $9,165.51 for the American Heart Association this year. All students enjoyed a day of jumping rope and learning how to use Chinese jump ropes, thanks to our amazing student teacher Ms. VanNoord. Check out the video of the kids “jumping the ring”, one of their FAVORITE JRFH activities. Thanks again to Ms. VanNoord for her twirling abilities!!!!
*please remember that all the other prizes will arrive in 3-4 weeks.
Please remember that JRFH envelopes are due next week Wednesday, Feb. 28. Online donations are due as well. On Feb. 28 we will be starting our jumping events in class. We will dedicate our class time to jumping! Thanks for you help with raising money for the American Heart Association.

Your student will earn Charger and Jax with their first online donation.
Teach your student to help others and spread awareness, just like Charger!
Jump Rope For Heart information will be coming home over the next week, as we see our classes. We had our best year ever last year with a total of $9,273.84 raised. We were blown away with how much our GT students raised. We are excited to see what our students can do this year.
All the funds raised go to the American Heart Association to help research heart disease. The heart is our strongest muscle in our body. Some people struggle with heart disease. This disease effects young and old and some of our own GT students and families. Thank you for helping us with this important cause.
The Jump date for our students will be Feb. 28-March 5. Students will be dedicating their P.E. time to jumping when they come to class during Feb. 28-March 5. All pledge envelopes and on-line donations are due on February 28.
Please take the time to read over the information your students come home with and we encourage you to try the on-line process this year! There is an informational sheet that will walk you right through how to do it! Join Miss VanNoord our student teacher and jump your way to good health!
Things to remember:
- JRFH =Jump Rope for Heart
- JRFH takes place during your childs P.E. Class. All students will be jumping regardless if they raised money for the American Heart Association.
- All Money raised goes to the American Heart Association for research to fight heart disease!
