The entire Lower School completed their second annual Jump Rope For Heart event during the last full week of school. The students raised money for the American Heart Association and then went to work to make their own hearts stronger and healthier. Every student participated in jumping rope, rope traveling, group jumps, hula hooping, and an obstacle course. As an entire school, the girls worked together to jump for 30 minutes straight! What a great start to a healthy and active summer! Click through for photos and videos from Jump Rope for Heart.
The sixth grade girls were treated to a special lesson on the final P.E. class of the year as classmate Sydney Amato took the lead. Sydney has been working hard on her hula hoop routine at Circus Place and shared her latest dance with the class. She then asked every girl (and teacher) to grab a hula hoop and give it a try! She taught the class knee hooping, elbow hooping, the weave, and the elevator trick. Everyone was in awe of how difficult these stunts were. Thank you to Sydney for a great end of the year PE class!
