Students at Ecole Routhier got plenty of exercise in the afternoon of May 27, as the school held the annual Jump Rope for Heart.
Following the monthly assembly, the Grade 5 students led all the others in the lower grades for warmups. (The Grade 6 students were on a field trip then.)
Then the students went rotated through stations around the school to participate in skipping.
All students raised money for the Alberta Heart and Stroke Foundation. Look for a separate story in next week’s paper.
