Carbon School is jumping for joy as they wrapped their Jump Rope for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. 
"We've been working with the Heart and Stroke Foundation for a number of years. Every year we have the students gather pledges (and) each kid had an opportunity to be in the gym and to do some different activities with jump rope. Our kids did a great job and raised a tremendous amount of money," stated Marci Steen, Associate Principal of Carbon School. 
The students at Carbon School raised a total of $2,253.25. 
With the goal being met, the entire school was treated to a 'Create Your Own Fruit Kabob' treat on Friday, March 10. The top fundraising students were recognized by receiving a free gym class and prizes handed out to many of the participants. Jump Rope 1
"Our goal was $2,000 and the kids surpassed that, so we're so pleased as is the Heart and Stroke Foundation," Steen noted. "The Heart and Stroke Foundation approached us at the school many years ago, so this has been ongoing. We do it every year, we've always been great supporters and this year was particularly good."
Steen added that Carbon School acknowledges many of the world days. 
"Tomorrow's Pi day and I'm a math major, so I'm keen about that. We have World Down Syndrome Day next week and then epilepsy day the following week. We just do our best to immerse our kids in different activities and learn about different things in the world."
