New Madrid Elementary students raised $7602.57 for the American Heart Association during our Jump Rope for Heart Event during the month of February. The culmination of everyone’s hard work was celebrated Friday March 2 as students demonstrated their jump rope skills and teachers raced a jump rope relay. The top four fundraisers, Logan C., Aubrey A., Craig C., and Annasten H., were rewarded with the honor of applying make up to the faces of Coach DJ Dace and principal, Mr. Brad Kolwyck.
The top earner will be acting principal for a day. The class raising the most money will enjoy a pizza party. All of our students are winners for their efforts in making themselves and helping others become and stay Heart Healthy by exercising, eating right, and avoiding unhealthy habits.
