COLONIAL GYM — Jump Rope for Heart was a fundraiser Feb. 14 where students came here to  jump rope. They jump rope because it’s good for their hearts and to raise money for the American Heart Association.

Before Jump Rope for Heart, students asked for donations from family members or friends of theirs. The day of the event, students gave the donations to Mrs. Sara Bagwell, the physical education teacher.

The fourth and fifth graders participated.

At the end of the event, Mrs. Bagwell picked two names out of a hat, and the students chosen won two t-shirts that everybody signed.

A few weeks later, Mrs. Bagwell will come around to the fourth and fifth grade classrooms to give kids the prizes they earned for raising money.

Ramona Inglebreak from the American Heart Association came to the school the day of the event. She has been working for the American Heart Association for eight years. She said her favorite part of the job is helping the kids.
