My Students

I am the Library Media Specialist at my school. My school is an elementary school located in an inner city. Over ninety-eight percent of our students receive free lunch. Our school is located in a high poverty area with over eighty percent of the residents living below the poverty line and receiving state services.

Students view our school as a safe haven and look for opportunities to explore challenges.

Health and wellness has become second nature in our school. Teaching healthy eating habits and exercise is crucial in our community due to a lack of knowledge. Many of our families shop based on convenience rather than conscious nutritional choices.

My Project

Through Jump Rope For Heart students learn jump rope skills, how their heart works and raise money to help kids with special hearts. They will have fun, learn how to stay healthy and make a difference in the lives of others! Students learn the value of community service and become empowered to contribute to their community's welfare. They join together to form teams to help other kids with heart conditions. Students will learn how to develop heart-healthy habits while being physically active. They will participate in Making Small Choices curriculum to teach strategies about keeping their heart healthy. It was developed to help them understand how their lifestyle affects their heart so that they can make those heart-healthy choices.

While working with our coaches they learn jump rope skills with the requested jump ropes that they can use for the rest of their lives.

Students will help our school earn gift certificates for free P.E. equipment based on how many minutes we jump for the competition!
