A Big Jump Up in Health Awareness, and Fundraising
Students across the District skipped and jumped their way to a record amount of fundraising on behalf of the American Heart Association. Every year, Chula Vista schools participate in Jump Rope for Heart, which teach students about healthy habits such as good nutrition and psychical education as well as the importance of community service through fundraising. Collectively, District schools raised an amazing $126,768 during the 2013-14 school year, with 100 percent of the schools hosting a Jump Rope for Heart event.
