Stephanie Jumps from the American Heart Association came down for Tarkio Elementary’s kickoff for Jump Rope for Heart Friday morning, March 2, 2018. The students will take part in a jumping unit during class and will collect donations through March 23. The student in each class who collects the most donations will get to be P.E. teacher for the day during one of their class times in April.
On March 14, the wellness committee will host a Jump Rope for Heart Event in the high school gym from 4:00-5:00 p.m. for kids who would like to participate in an hour of different jump rope stations.
