Jump Rope For Heart - 2/13

Mrs. Arbour, our wonderful physical education teacher, has again organized students to participate in Jump Rope For Heart.

In case you didn't know (from the Jump Rope For Heart website):
Jump Rope For Heart is a national educational fund-raising program that is sponsored by the American Heart Association and the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (AAHPERD).

While participating at King, this program engages our students in a physical activity (jumping rope) with an option for raising funds to support lifesaving heart and stroke research. Students can ask friends and family for donations if parents feel it is OK. Either way, all students participate in physical fitness and better understand the value of community service.

This year's event will take place on February 13! I can't wait to see everyone jumping!
