Jump Rope for Heart week is always one of my favorites. I have always believed strongly in the importance of giving to others and supporting worthy causes. With heart disease being the leading cause of death in the United States, I cannot thing of a more worthy cause to get our students involved in. Not only did we raise money for the American Heart Association, we also raised awareness. In a five day period we had a newspaper article and a video made about what we were doing. Our students learned that they CAN make a difference.
Dr. Martin Luther King said ”
Everybody can be great, because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love”
What a great message.
