Old Bonhomme Elementary recently participated in their 8th annual Jump Rope for Heart event. During a two-week unit in Physical Education, all of the students practiced individual and partner jumping skills, as well as long rope jumping skills. Jumping rope is not only great aerobic exercise, but it is also a very brain-friendly exercise. Students developed neural networks and worked to improve the function of their brains! As part of Jump Rope for Heart, the Old Bonhomme students collected and donated $13,948 to the American Heart Association to benefit heart research and education.
