Making your Heart Skip....

At the beginning of February Students at Matthews Elementary got their fundraising forms and went looking for sponsors to help them raise money for the American Heart Association.  On Friday, February 23rd they  picked up their jump ropes,  jumped over hurdles and learned how to check their heart rate all to raise money and awareness for this great cause!  The original goal for the event was $1000.00 and if we reached that goal the top 5 earners would win a chance to spray Coach Sapp and Mrs. Melanie with  crazy string... but, as they started the reach the goal, the incentive got better; not only would they get to spray the staff with crazy string, but Mrs. Melanie volunteered to Kiss a PIG if they could reach $1500.00.  With only ONE more day left of the fundraiser, the students are anxiously awaiting to see if the bonus incentive has been reached... STAY TUNED......

Jump rope for heart

Friday February 23rd Lilbourn Elementary students attended an assembly to close out their Jump rope for heart fundraiser.  All donations collected were donated to the American Heart Association.  The total amount raised was $2370.62 Laine McElveen in 4th grade was our top earner raising $1230.00!!!! She received the Heart Hero medal and also received a pizza/dance party for her entire class. 

During the assembly several students were chosen to demonstrate the jump rope skills they have been practicing in P.E.  The favorite was the criss-cross!!!

Mrs. Brittain had a special treat for any student hat raised $20 or more.  The students were each given an egg to crack over her head.  The student who picked and cracked the unboiled egg would get to be the principal for a day!!! Malakhi Hughes was the lucky winner!!

Thank you to everyone that participated and gave a donation for this great event!!!
