Friendship Parties - February 14, 2019

Jump Rope 4 Heart

On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of this week our students participated in our Jump Rope 4 Heart donation drive.  Every PE class spent their 40 minutes rotating through different jump rope stations.  The students had a lot of fun, and we raised a lot of money for the American Heart Association.  Currently we have over $4600 raised so far, and online donations can still be made through February 28th (visit http://american.heart.org/kidsheartchallenge/, then type in our school "McClellan" to make a donation). 
 
Check out all of the fun we had this week...
