Countrywood Jump Rope for Heart

Once again Jump Rope for Heart was held at Countrywood!  All of Mrs. Carron’s and Mrs. Reichert-Emprimo’s P.E. classes have been getting prepared and excited to participate in this year’s celebration of healthy hearts, healthy choices, and healthy lives! 

The students enjoyed watching a super fun video that discussed how Jump Rope for Heart helps children with special hearts, by raising money needed to fund research and find ways to “fix” their hearts.  We also learned about the importance of getting lots of exercise and eating healthy foods to keep our hearts healthy and strong.  

All of our students were eager to participate and show they cared about the children with special hearts!  Last year, Countrywood students and their families raised over $12,000 for The American Heart Association. We are hopeful to top last year’s donations.
