Wednesday was a beautiful day for Fernwood's 12th year as a Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser!  We as a community have raised funds for the Heart and Stroke Foundation!  Congratulations Fernwood!

Today, students moved through stations (Snakey-Snakey, Round the World, Hoola-Skip, Side-to-Side, Cross-Over, Long Rope, Run & Race) to practice all the different ways to jump rope...ask them to tell you all the ways you can enjoy skipping!  They then showed off our best skills as a celebration.  Grade 4 and 5 students were notably helpful with younger students. 

Thank you to everyone for contributing to this worthy cause. Once we tally all the toonies we will announce it as it's still coming in. Special thanks to Ms Melissa Hingston for running this event.
