Title of Bulletin Board: CME Jumps Rope for Heart

Category: Special Events

Suggested Grade Level: 3-5

Materials: jump ropes, pictures, info from the jump rope organization, bulletin board paper and


The Jump Rope for Heart bulletin board was put up to inform students, staff and parents of the upcoming Jump Rope for Heart Day. It served as a motivational tool to get kids excited about the event and help them think about anyone and everyone in their lives that may suffer a heart condition. (At the time we had a student that had an artificial heart going to school at our school). The event is held to raise funds for future heart research and development to one day eventually reduce or eliminate heart disease as we know it today!
