To motivate students, they were given the chance to be "Teacher for the Day" if they raised the most in their physical education class period. The following students chose and lead an activity of their choice: 6th grade: Kristen Rislund, Alexis Carr; 5th grade: Lilly Ness, Paul Jenson; 4th grade: Alexis Larson, Samantha Dahlgren; and 3rd grade; Amy Lundstrom and Jonathan Donovan.

Donations raised during Jump Rope For Heart help fund research to fight heart disease and stroke and also support the American Heart Association.
