RES Students Jump for Heart Health

Students at Rockenbaugh Elementary School recently raised $6,209 for the American Heart Association’s Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser. This year’s event was combined with Parent Play Days for double the fun. Every student filled out a heart either in honor or memory of a loved one, neighbor, friend or simply to keep their own heart healthy.

“Thank you to everyone for participating,” said Tricia Pate, RES Physical Education teacher. “What a great way to show-off some fabulous jump rope skills along with compassion and generosity.”

Rockenbaugh Elementary is just one of 11 campuses across the Carroll Independent School District that took part in fundraising efforts for the American Heart Association during the month of February. Campus nurses coordinated with the district’s Communications and Marketing Department to sell t-shirts to faculty, staff and students. Half of the purchase price of each t-shirt goes to the American Heart Association. Click here for additional details about Carroll’s annual “Dragons Go Red” campaign.
