Jump Rope for Heart is an AWESOME event we do in P.E. every year!
OUR JUMP ROPE FOR HEART WEEK IS APRIL 23-27th during all P.E. classes! We will be jumping in appreciation for hearts everywhere and in honor of kids and people who suffer from heart-related illnesses! We continue to keep on emphasizing the importance of establishing healthy habits to last a lifetime!
Envelopes for our event are due by APRIL 27th! (Envelopes are being sent home the 2nd week of April). Please make checks payable to The American Heart Association (NOT Pioneer).
A few years ago, we had a heart hero of our own, who attended Pioneer...his name was Jacob. He has forever impacted our lives and made this event even more special as he continues to allow us to be part of his journey. Thanks to the American Heart Association and researchers, doctors, and the support of his family and the community, Jacob is THRIVING. He has survived procedures and every day, makes sure he is getting in his exercise! Jacob's story last year really inspired our Pioneer Community, and we want to continue to support the American Heart Association and students like Jacob. The money that students collect goes straight to the American Heart Association, to fund the research needed to touch as many lives as possible!
