Jump Rope for Heart
Our school is participating in the American Heart Association’s Kids Heart Challenge and this year your child can win a $25 Amazon gift card for their class but we need your help.  Please help us be #1 by getting the most students registered online and taking a challenge.  Go online at  www.heart.org/kidsheartchallenge  or download the free Kids Heart Challenge mobile app to help your child register, where they will make a pledge to be more heart healthy and earn a free wristband. 

When our school reaches 50% of our students taking the pledge online, we will also receive an EXTRA $300 in free equipment for the school. We are about 35-40 students away from reaching our goal . If you would be willing to sign your child up online to help us reach this goal, we would greatly appreciate it! Even though our envelopes were due last Friday, we can still sign up online through this week!

Thank you for helping your student take the pledge to keep their heart healthy, our class win the challenge and our school get extra equipment!

If you have any questions, email Mr. De Jong at  tdejong@occhristian.pvt.k12.ia.us
