As part of the event, the students, faculty, and staff of the school descended upon the playground with jump ropes in hand to exercise and have fun with their classmates for the worthy cause.

Coordinated by physical education teacher Elaine Sernoffsky, the students did an assortment of stationary jumps and traditional jump roping on their way to raising $1,023.62. The program culminated with one big giant circle of students, teachers, and staff jumping together to celebrate to amazing total raised for the community.

The program not only assisted the students with learning how to make a difference in the community but also promoted the benefits of living a healthy lifestyle in a fun way.
