My students need jump ropes to keep them physically active and to develop cardiorespiratory endurance.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Our students love to jump rope and our ropes are worn out from all the use they get! We try to keep our students as physically active as possible while having fun. Jump roping gives us some diversity in how we develop cardio-respiratory endurance.
We are a title-one elementary school where our parents do their best to assist us with our supplies through fundraising however, they are unable to do it alone.
We are 75% free and reduced lunch school as well and can use any assistance we can get to help us secure equipment.
Our students will use the jump ropes to help develop their cardio-respiratory endurance and to have fun while doing this! We not only use the ropes to develop cardio-respiratory endurance but to perform a warm up, special events like Jump Rope for Heart and with our after school program.
If we were able to secure these jump ropes, not only will it make our students' hearts stronger but they will also be more successful in the classroom, be healthy so they shouldn't have as many sick days, and be less stressed out by all of the standardized testing they are put through to move onto the next grade level!
