Jump Rope for Heart
Jump Rope for Heart Event - March 7th

Jump Rope

Green Mountain is participating in a very special community service program to raise funds for the American Heart Association. 

Students will be practicing their jump roping skills during our Jump Rope for Heart Event on Thursday, March 7, 2019.  We will start jumping at 2:00 pm and finish at 4:15 pm.  Students will need comfortable tennis shoes, a frozen water bottle, and a positive attitude.  In addition, students will need a ride home at 4:15.  Family and friends are welcome to support your child’s participation by making contributions. Collection envelopes are due on Tuesday, March 5, 2019.  Your child can even raise funds online at www.americanheart.org/jump. With your help your child can email family friends and relatives for support.  However, we ask that children not go door to door or ask strangers for donations.  Checks should be made payable to Green Mountain ASB.  Prizes are available for certain monetary amounts.  However, students can choose to not receive prizes so more money can go to the American Heart Association.  I stress to students that this is a charitable fund raiser and prizes are not important to Mr. Lancaster.

Volunteers are needed for the event.  You can choose to participate (JUMP!) or help with students by organizing groups and coaching kids.  Most importantly, students need your encouragement.  If you are interested, there will be a sign up sheet in the office or you can contact Mr. L. (662-8711).  Please make sure to turn in a volunteer application.  They are available in the office at Green Mountain.

Money your child raises will fund research that will save more lives each year... maybe your own or that of someone in your family.  Our efforts can truly make a difference. I appreciate your support.
