Students jump their way to heart health -- Gazette.Net


Students at S. Christa McAuliffe Elementary School in Germantown raised more than $5,400 during February and March while participating in the American Heart Association Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser.

The students’ original goal was $2,500, which they more than doubled. As a reward for their work, physical education teacher Tim O’Connor, who organized the campaign, allowed the students to duct tape him to the wall of the gym during Celebrate McAuliffe, the school’s monthly all-school assembly.
