Students at Griffin Elementary School recently raised over $36,000 for the American Heart Association during a Jump Rope for Heart event. For two days, PE classes were filled with students leaping around an array of jump rope activities. Then they replenished their energy levels with healthy snacks supplied by the PTA. “I’m very proud of our Griffin Grizzlies,” shares PE teacher Sean O’Connor. “The kids got really excited about jumping rope, but even more excited about the chance to help save lives. Their efforts resulted in over $36,000 being raised for the American Heart Association!” Please mention you found this on www.KatyMagazine.com.
