Jump Rope For Heart!




Dear Parent/Guardian,                                                   

On February 16th – 20th, during the students’ PE class, our school is holding a Jump Rope for Heart event.  Last year was such a huge success with all of our students, family and friends putting time, money and effort into Jump Rope for Heart at Moore School!  Last year we raised over $12,000!   Our students will learn jump rope skills while raising money to fund lifesaving research and educational programs sponsored by the American Heart Association.


Our school also earns gift certificates for physical education equipment and with our tight budget, this comes in handy!


Family and friends are welcome to support your child’s participation by making contributions.  Your child can even raise funds on-line!  Easy step by step instructions about our simple on-line donation program can be found at


Double Your Donations!!!  If your employer has a matching gifts program, which many of them do, please indicate the matched amounts on the student’s collection envelope and include the matching gifts form with your donation.  Matching gifts increase donations, making your child and the event, more successful.  To check if your company does matching gifts ask your human resources department or go to


Your child will receive thank you gifts based on the amount of contributions they collect.  Thank you gifts will be here around the end of March.  All Checks should be made payable to the American Heart Association.  One important thing to remember…students should not go door to door or ask strangers for money!


Please support our Jump Rope for Heart program!  Our school goal for this year’s event is $13,000.  If you have any questions or concerns please contact me.  There is a lot of great information and links on my school website about Jump Rope for Heart.
