Students Exceed Goal and Jump!

From a recently issued press release…

Caleb Rolfe goes airborne during Jump activities

Guilford– McKusick Elementary School and Guilford Primary School students exceeded the goal they’d set by raising nearly $2600 in their recent  “Jump Rope for Heart” Program. The program was coordinated by School Nurse Sharon Foster and Paula Bailey an Ed Tech at McKusick. The program is an outreach program developed by the American Heart Association. By participating in Jump Rope for Heart students learn how their hearts work and how to take care of them through physical activity and nutrition. They also learn about children who have been affected by cardiovascular disease and how they can help them. In short, children have fun and feel good by helping others.

Foster explained she was very pleased how the program reached into each classroom with cardiac education. “The students understand more about why we jump and it was also pretty great that the students got a little over an hour of exercise while having fun and earning money for a great cause
