Jump Rope for Heart - a note from Mr. Smiley

Greetings Folwell Elementary Families!

There’s still time to join the team!!!  Folwell Elementary began their annual service learning project and officially kicked-off Jump Rope for Heart with the American Heart Association this year!!  We have been having so much fun!  Our envelopes are due soon, so now is the time to jump on board. 

The heart health of our students at Folwell Elementary is very important to us.  Jump Rope for Heart is a program specifically designed to promote heart health in our students while also providing them an important opportunity to help other people.  Our goal this year is to have 100% of our students join our team page and commit to a health challenge:  be physically active 60 minutes a day, choose water over sugar sweetened beverages, or eat more fruits and veggies.  So far, we have 44 students registered – WOW!!!  If you haven’t registered, don’t worry, we’ve still got room on the team!

Please take a moment and help your student join our team by clicking on this link: Folwell Elementary

When students join, they will receive a glow in the dark wristband to thank them for taking the pledge to be healthy.  Should your family choose to support this cause with donations, you may make a donation on this page and you can share the opportunity with family and friends via email, ecards, social media or event text message.  This really helps drive the mission of the AHA and lets others know all the good that is happening in our school.  
Our goal is to have every student join our team and take a health pledge - Be more physically active, choose water over sugar sweetened beverage, or eat more fruits and veggies.  We can do this!!
Thank you so much for supporting our school and the American Heart Association!

Thank you,
Mr. Smiley
