February is Jump Rope For Heart month. On February 24, Gause students will
participate in Jump Rope For Heart. Jump Rope For Heart is a community
service-learning program of the American Heart Association. Jump Rope For
Heart teaches students the importance of developing heart-healthy habits; that
being physically active can be fun, and that by raising funds to support research
and education they can help save lives across the country and in their
community. Gause Elementary School will qualify for gift certificates for free
physical education equipment based on the amount that our school raises.
Students will qualify for individual thank you gifts based on the donations they
collect. Every student is welcome to participate (donations are not required).
Additional information will be sent home with your child, as we get closer to the
event date. For more information about Jump Rope For Heart, you can visit
