Staff and students of Chinook Center School kicked off our Jump Rope for Heart program during our project time on Friday, January 27th. Students kicked off the event with a guest speaker from the Heart & Stroke Foundation as well as a motivational video and some heart healthy activities. In conjunction with our physical education programming, the Jump for Heart fundraiser is used more as a healthy school wide initiative in which the students will participate in according to their grades:
Kindergarten- Tuesday, February 14, 2012
Grade 1 & 3- Thursday, February 16, 2012
Grade 2 & 4- Friday, February 17, 2012
The students received their fundraising envelopes on Friday…along with a free skipping rope and skipping trick guide so they too can be a Heart HERO at home. The event will wrap-up on Friday, February 17 and all pledges, money and envelopes must be in no later than February 17.
