Students Jump Towards Better Health

Students of John F. Kennedy Intermediate School participated in their annual Jump Rope for Heart and Hoops for Heart fundraiser. Jump Rope for Heart and Hoops for Heart are national education and fundraising events sponsored by the American Heart Association and the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance.  

During physical education classes, students completed a circuit of basketball-themed activities and learned how to develop heart-healthy habits while being physically active. The stations engaged students in teamwork challenges while empowering them to improve their own health and help support other kids with heart-health issues.
