Our school is excited to participate in Jump Rope for Heart this month!

Our students will discover fun ways to get active, practice healthy habits and learn about helping others while raising money to beat heart disease and stroke. Our Event Day is set for April 18 & 19 during each classroom’s phys ed time. Consider dressing your child in red to show support for Heart & Stroke and to make it fun for the class!

Our event day will aim to get students excited to get their bodies moving and hearts pumping in support of a great cause, as well as show off the fun ways they’ve been learning to jump! Our fundraising goal is $2000 and is open until April.

You can donate directly to our school page link: https://jumpropeforheart.crowdchange.ca/50383 or visit jumpropeforheart.ca, click register and search Southwood School. Your child will also bring home a pledge sheet if you’d like to fundraise that way.
