JUMP ROPE FOR HEART
Many of our Wellsville Elementary Schoolstudents participated in the Jump Rope for Heart program during the month of January during their physical education classes. The American Heart Association sponsors the "Jump Rope for Heart" event. This is the second year that the elementary school physical education department has entered into this event. All of the participants received a full class of jumping activities and information in regard to the importance of fitness and healthy living choices.
The students were able to understand the importance of fitness in daily living choices and the connection to the P.E. Fitness curriculum. Student participants received a certificate and sticker for the day's activities and were presented a banner for participation to be hung up in the gym. A total amount of $4,068.70 was collected for the American Heart Association. The P.E. department thanks the public for its generous support of this program.
