Last week marked the culmination of the efforts of Walnut Ridge Primary School’s participation in the American Heart Association’s “Jump Rope For Heart” program. The program helps the children learn jump-rope skills and how their hearts work, while raising money to help other children whose hearts have special needs.

The program also includes lessons about how to stay healthy and even includes the hands-on skills about the shoe tying process via another exercise called “Don’t Lose Your Shoes.” In addition to the bouldering wall and rope jumping they also tried their hand at a game called “Skip It.”

As the kids mastered the art of tying their shoes they received special awards from physical education teacher Todd Piontkowski.
