GREAT JOB GRACE!!! We have raised nearly $3,000 for Jump Rope for Heart. 1st grade alone has already raised over $1,000. Remember online fundraising is the easiest way to raise money. You are able to create a personalized website for your child that can shared through emails to family and friends or through social media. Raising money of any amount is a great help to the Heart Association. If you have any questions please contact Mrs. Knuppenburg. Let's keep up the great work Grace! It takes a heart to be a hero.
It's time to KICK OFF our Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser!
As a school we have already raised well over $1,000 and we've just begun! Great job! This year our school goal is to raise $11,600. Your child will be bringing home a donation envelope explaining which pups can be earned. Donation envelopes are due back to school by January 29th. Let's work together as a school to raise money for those people in our community, state, and country that have sick hearts. It takes a heart to be a hero! Please see Mrs. Knuppenburg with any questions.
