Jump Rope For Heart 2015On  Wednesday, May 27th  the students and staff took part in the school’s annual “Jump Rope for Heart Event”.  The event began with a kick-off with the Educational Rep from the Heart & Stroke Foundation coming to the school last week to talk to the students about heart healthy activities and nutrition.The students were campaigning this past week and fundraising for the Heart & Stroke Foundation.  Sponsor  money is due on Friday, May 29th. An updated total will be posted as soon as all money has been submitted. The students have an opportunity to earn prizes at different levels. The largest prize being a bicycle if they raise $500.The event itself is a lot of fun where the kids get active, get some fresh air and experience the joy and fun of coming together as a school with their friends, classmates and teachers. We had great music, lots of laughs, enjoyed some popsicles on a beautiful Wednesday morning and the whole school took part in the Cha-Cha- Slide. Thanks to all students and staff who helped set things up, participated in the activity and who helped clean-up. Also, thank-you for the fundraising support for a very important cause – the NB Heart & Stroke Foundation!
