Jump Rope for Heart

ucm_479152Jump Rope and Hoops for Heart is an annual fundraiser we have done at Legacy for over 10 years. Heart disease is still the number one killer of adults and Legacy wants to help make a difference. Middle School Students will shoot hoops on March 8, 2018, while  K-5. Students will jump on March 9th, to raise money for American Heart Association of Colorado. Students will learn essential heart-healthy lessons on how to care for their hearts, by eating healthy and exercising every day! Jump Rope for Heart is always one of our students favorite days!

We have kicked off Jump Rope & Hoops for Heart in PE and your students are bringing home a letter and envelope with details.  This is the 38th anniversary of our Jump Rope for Heart program (perhaps you remember doing it as a kid)!  During the next few weeks, students will be using educational materials from the American Heart Association to learn about HOW and WHY they need to take care of their hearts.  They will also be raising funds to help others whose hearts aren’t as healthy.  We also get to earn money to purchase new PE equipment!

With a $5 donation, students will earn “Rory” and a lanyard.  Tear off the coupon on your paper flyer when your student raises this amount and have them return it to their PE Teacher.

Elizabeth Education Foundation

The mission of the Elizabeth Education Foundation is to enhance the educational process and opportunities for all students, teachers, employees, parents and community members in the Elizabeth C-1 School District.

Community giving cards can be loaded and recycled many times.  Simply add the money for all your purchases to the community giving card and spend it.  It’s easy and costs you only a minute of your time, yet provides thousands of dollars into our classrooms.  Our goal is to put $15,000 back into the classrooms this year.  You can help us by simply using a community giving grocery card every time you shop.  Can you help us reach our goal?

It’s easy….order a card from the Elizabeth Education Foundation and reuse it every time you shop.  There’s no need to purchase a new card each time, simply reload and recycle your Elizabeth Education Foundation card.  Every card comes loaded with a $10 balance.  5% of every dollar added to the card regenerates our classrooms in the form of teacher grants.  Grants are awarded each December.  Please see our website,  www.elizabethef.org for a list of our grant awards.
