Central Manor JRFH 2017

Dear Parent/Guardian,

It’s time for Jump Rope For Heart, American Heart Association program that teach students in 38,000 schools nationwide valuable lessons that will last a lifetime, such as:

  1. Your child learns about the importance of taking care of their heart and how it works.  Did you know that heart disease is the leading cause of death in America?  We can change that – 80 percent of risk factors for heart disease are preventable.  Each member of the Zoo Crew teaches healthy habits for life!

2. Your child learns the importance of helping others through this service learning project.  Did you know that a lion’s roar can be heard from five miles away?  Your child has the ability to make a difference and share their ROAR for heart health challenge through our Zoo Crew E-Card and asking them to share that message with others.  When they take the challenge and send it to 10 people, they will earn Rory’s Zoo Crew Badge.

3. Your child feels good for making a difference in people’s lives!  Funds raised support the American Heart Association’s research and education initiatives that save lives in our community.  Additionally, the school earns money for PE equipment so we can keep our kids MOVING!

Students at Central Manor should have received a parent letter and collection envelope.  All returning materials can be handed to either main office or Mr. Binkley.  Due date for collection envelopes is February 28th 2017.

Thank you!
