Through the Jump Rope for Heart program, students secure donations to jump rope during their physical education class to raise awareness about heart health. There were 137 Landing students who participated in this fundraiser, as well as staff members Ms. Caminiti, Ms. LeDonne, Mrs. Martinovic, Mrs. Muzante, Mrs. Reynolds, Ms. Serani and Ms. Thomas. Every participant raising money received a lanyard and a “Heart Hero,” which was placed on a “Hearty Hero” team poster at school.
Thanks to Mrs. Muzante and Mr. Grazioso, who helped distribute more than 200 prizes to the participating students. A special thanks to all of the Landing families who participated in this event and all those who donated. Each year we are thankful and appreciative of the incredible support throughout this fundraiser.
