Essex Public School students enthusiastically participated in the Jump Rope for Heart event day! Our phoenix students fundraised diligently with proceeds going to help those in the local community with heart, lung and blood issues. We surpassed our original goal and raised over $6000 for The Heart & Stroke Foundation!
On our event day, our Essex Skipping Team, demonstrated some of the events all students would participate in later in the day. Students were then active at a variety of athletic and fun stations outside on a beautiful, sunny day. Stations included; double dutch, long rope, basketball, soccer, flag tag, traveler and even some sponge water races. All had a great day, and most importantly, students raised money for a great cause! Healthy hearts, healthy minds, healthy kids! Jump Rope for Heart!
