Jump Rope for Heart has Begun!

posted in: Home Page News | 0

One of Ms. McColl’s favourite times of the year has begun (not to mention Dr. George Hall’s, as well!).  The kick-off assembly for Jump Rope for Heart took place yesterday, March 30th!  That means Jump Rope for Heart Fundraising is officially underway!  


Why Jump Rope for Heart?  This charity raises money for Heart and Stroke research.  Hundreds of millions of dollars have been raised to aid in developments to fight one of Canada’s deadliest diseases.  You can check out the Jump Rope for Heart website to learn more about how the charity spends the money that is raised and the achievements that have happened, in part, because of the fundraising raised.  We also like this charity and event because it gets our students physically active!


Key information is listed below.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the school.
