South Man Elementary Pre-K students took time out of their day to participate in the “Jump Rope for Heart Program” recently. The students jumped together for one cause — raising money for the American Heart Association.

Jump Rope for Heart is celebrating its 35th Anniversary as a way to raise money, and awareness, for the American Heart Association. Students learned that supporting a cause and exercising can be fun.

Mrs. Katharine Ellis and Mrs. Amy Toler’s Pre-K class actually raised $616.30 for the American Heart Association. A $50 donation was given to the class right after the picture was taken.

“I would like to thank all those that donated or supported our students,” Mrs. Ellis said, “special thanks go to our fourth grade students for helping our Pre-K students during their jump rope activities”.

The Pre-K class would also like to thank Mary Borst, the physical education teacher at South Man for organizing and planning the event.

Danita Noel is the principal.
