Jumping to New Heights with Jump Rope for Heart

For the past three years, Paynter Elementary has participated in the "Jump Rope For Heart" initiative from the American Heart Association. Through Jump Rope For Heart, kids learn jump-rope skills, how their heart works, and raise money to help kids with special hearts. The students have had fun, learned how to stay healthy, and make a difference in the lives of others! Over the past two years, Paynter has raised over $30,000! Through the generosity of the PES families, friends, and staff, nearly $16,000 was raised in 2018. A heartfelt thanks to all of those of have donated and helped Paynter achieve such an amazing goal!
