Jump Rope for Heart:

The faculty and students at South Anna Elementary in Montpelier, Virginia are proud to announce that the school has now raised over $100,000 for the American Heart Association through annual Jump Rope for Heart fundraisers. In eleven events beginning in 1999, South Anna Elementary students have collected donations in the form of pledges from friends and family towards the school's yearly Jump Rope for Heart goals.  Students then jump rope in their weekly physical education class under the direction of South Anna P.E. teacher and former Hanover County Teacher of the Year Carol Beazley. This year, the students surpassed the school goal of $11,000 by raising over $12,000. This put the school's total contribution over $100,000. On the last day of school, teachers of the class that raised the most money at each grade level, the music teacher, the reading resource teacher, and the school principal went down a water slide in front of the entire student body to celebrate the fundraising milestone.
