For the 17th consecutive year, Minisink Valley Elementary School is participating in National Jump Rope for Heart Week, April 11-15.  Offered by schools across America, this heart-pumping program helps raise awareness around heart health while raising funds for the American Heart Association (AHA) to advance the treatment and prevention of heart disease. 


Students take part in the event during their regularly scheduled physical education classes. Activities teach students how to care for their hearts while they experience the joy of giving back to the larger community and being a part of a nation-wide effort.
