Jump Rope for Heart at Prairie brings students together

On Thursday, March 1st, Prairie School students participated in the American Heart Association’s Jump Rope for Heart.  Students raised $10,070 for the cause, and learned several activities to keep their hearts healthy in the process!


Carl Sandburg High School Junior Leaders Program attended the event and helped facilitate eight heart-healthy stations, that included hula hoops, jumping rope, and a variety of other calisthenics.  This is the sixth year that high school students have participated in this event at Prairie, serving as healthy role models for the younger students.


Orland School District 135 is so proud of all of this year’s participants in the Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser!
