Landing Elementary School raised an all-time-high of $10,780 during its Jump Rope for Heart Fundraiser. The fundraiser took place during the month of February in conjunction with the American Heart Association’s Heart Month.

Congratulations to Arden and Paige Jimenez, who raised a combined $1,620, the most ever raised by a family. Arden raised $1,000, setting a new record at the school.  

Other top fundraisers were:
Milo Walthers:   $575
Madelyn Buhr:   $566
Mia Lupinski:   $500
Juliet Bifone:   $450
Kalia Edwards:  $300

Through the Jump Rope for Heart program, students secure donations to jump rope during their physical education class to raise awareness about heart health. There were 122 students and staff that participated in the fundraiser, with 61 of those students raising $7,803 online. Mrs. Muzante, Ms. Serani and Mrs. Sullivan collected the remaining donations at school. 

In grade 3, Mrs. Tenke’s class raised a Landing School all-time-high of $1,560; in grade 4, Mrs. Clark’s class raised $1,327 and in grade 5, Mrs. Reynolds class raised $444. Every student who raised money received an instant lanyard and “scare crew member,” a small alien-type gift, which was placed on our “Scare Team” poster at school. 

Many thanks to all those who donated to this worthwhile cause. Each year, we are thankful and appreciative of the incredible support throughout this fundraiser to help those less fortunate than ourselves. A special thanks to Mrs. Muzante and Mr. Graziosi for their help in distributing the more than 230 prizes to the students who participated.
