Woonsocket Elementary students raise funds for the American Heart Association

Oscar Anderson, top fundraiser for Woonsocket Elementary’s Jump Rope for Heart, pushes a whipped-cream pie into Mr. Rodriguez’s face.

This year the Woonsocket Elementary PE students took part in a Jump Rope for Heart event to raise money for the American Heart Association. This is the second year they have done this, with the first year being 2016.

All the students committed to jumping rope during PE class for one week to make their hearts stronger, which they learned is the most important part of their bodies. A jump rope was given to each student to take home after participating.

The second part of the fundraiser was to get people to pledge money to sponsor the student of their choice in the jump roping event. Each student was asked to raise at least $20, if they could, and the whole school had a goal of raising at least $3,000. The top six students who raised the most money got to push a pie in the face of Mr. Armando Rodriguez, Woonsocket PE teacher, and Mr. Charley Larson, Woonsocket keyboarding teacher. If the entire school met the goal of $3,000, both of those men would jump in the lake, during this time of year, when the water is very cold.
