Jumping For a Cause



Things were jumping at Meadows Elementary School last Friday.  Third, fourth and fifth grade students were jumping for heart to raise money for the American Heart Association.  “They are spending an hour jumping rope, keeping their heart healthy and learning healthy heart habits,” said physical education teacher Jill Meyer.  Kids jumped rope by themselves, others jumped with a partner while some students used a long jump rope to learn teamwork skills as they took turns jumping.  The kids had a great time jumping and helping raise money to help others.  Jump for heart usually takes place in February, but Meadows got a jump start and in doing so raised more than $500.
