Students in Mr. Nathan Helton and Ms. Briana Young’s class at Jeremiah Gray-Edison Elementary School demonstrated the core value of compassion by participating in ‘Jump Rope for Heart’. The American Heart Association uses this fundraiser to help save lives around the world. During this 3 week unit, students learned various jumping techniques and strategies to keep their hearts healthy for a lifetime. JGE raised a total of $8,368.06! Mrs. Newbrough’s 4th grade class raised the most money and Mrs. Mulligan’s 1st grade class had the most participants. As a result, both classes will participate in the ‘Dodgeball Blast’ of Mr. Helton and Ms. Young. Thanks to all participants for being a heart hero!
