The Jump Rope for Heart event at Kennesaw Elementary was extremely successful, raising $46,174 for the American Heart Association. Students received pledges from family and friends to donate to their jump rope efforts. Not only does the event get kids active, but teaches the importance of community service. This year’s event proceeds were more than $10,000 over last year’s totals. Physical education teacher Emily Adams and first grade teacher Patti Zaino organized the event.
