Since 1978, Jump Rope for Heart has raised more than $810 million for research and educational programs. On November 21, 2013, 53 students in 4th, 5th and 6th grade participated in Jump Rope for Heart. While participating in jump rope activities, the students learned how physical activity can help prevent heart disease and stroke. Students also collected money and raised approximately $3,200.00 for the American Heart Association.
Fredon school students recently learned what a service project is during their health classes. Students in grades Kindergarten through 6th grade then created Holiday Cards that will be sent to military troops that are serving overseas through the Holidays! We wanted to send some Holiday cheer as well as thank them for their service to our Country. Students enjoyed the opportunity to give up some of their time to bring happiness to others. Pictured are Ryan Alviani and Aiden VanWingerden creating their holiday cards.
On October 23, 2013 all 6th grade students participated in the 12th
Annual Middle School Anti-Bullying Summit. The theme for this years
summit was "Connect with Kindness". With support from the FEF, the
students received a tee-shirt with the summits logo on it. Throughout
the day the students participated in team building and leadership
activities. They also learned skills to help prevent and stop
bullying from happening.
Fredon School launched their Respect week with the theme "CONNECT WITH KINDNESS" . The students received a DAK (Daily Acts of Kindness) coupon for each act of kindness throughout the week. The DAKs were posted on the bulletin board for the week and later removed for a special DAK drawing. The students of Fredon school collected a total of 278 DAK coupons for the week.
