Jump Rope for Heart and Heart Healthy Presentation

We are pleased to inform you that W.J. Watson Public School has surpassed its fundraising goal for the Heart and Stroke Foundation.  Our Jump Rope For Heart event raised $6065.00 for heart and stroke research and community support programs.  Our goal this year was to raise $5000.00 and as you can see, we raised even more than that!

Students will receive their prizes and tax receipts in the next few weeks.

Thank you again for your commitment to keeping kids healthy and fundraising to help others.  We look forward to “jumping“ again with you next year!

On Monday, June 13, students in grades 3 to 6 will be listening to a presentation from the Heart and Stroke Foundation entitled “Heart Healthy Kids“.  Each 30 minute presentation will focus on keeping our hearts healthy by eating nutritious food, exercising regularly and keeping away from tobacco.

 

If you have any questions or concerns, please give the school a call at 905-476-1618.

Jump Rope For Heart!

Dear Parent/Guardian:

W.J. Watson Public School is pleased to be holding a Heart and Stroke Foundation Jump Rope For Heart event on Tuesday, May 24, 2016 at 2:00 pm. In case of rain, the event will be held on May 25.  All money raised will support the Heart and Stroke Foundation in their mission to promote children’s health and fund vital heart and stroke research.

Jump Rope For Heart encourages kids to get active by skipping rope while they collect pledges for heart disease and stroke research.  They also learn the importance of living a healthy lifestyle and giving back to their community.

 

Participating schools can receive a portion of proceeds back from the Heart and Stroke Foundation to support the purchase of physical education equipment.

We need your help to reach W.J. Watson’s fundraising goal of $5 000.00.

Please help support your child’s fundraising efforts by registering them online at JumpRopeForHeart.ca and sending out donation requests to friends, family and colleagues.  Online fundraising is the quickest way to reach all of your contacts and online donors receive an automatic tax receipt.  Plus, when students receive their first online donation, they will receive a free skipping rope from the Heart and Stroke Foundation!

If you need assistance, please visit jumpforheart.ca and check out the step by step “how-to” resources.

Each student has already brought home a pledge envelope to collect cash and cheque donations in person.  Please ensure that their pledge envelope is returned to school on Tuesday, May 24, 2016.

Thank you in advance for your support,

Mrs. Lewis and Ms. Spear

Congratulations to the staff, students and community of W.J. Watson P.S.  We raised over $3800 for the Heart & Stroke Foundation through our Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser.

Thank you so much for your generous contributions to this worthwhile cause.  Thank you as well to Mrs. Bartlett for coordinating the event!

Jump Rope for Heart!

Students spent a warm, summer afternoon celebrating “Heart Health” by skipping, playing basketball and playing other games during our Jump Rope for Heart activities.  Thank you to all those students, and their families, who made donations to this worthy cause.  Special thanks to Mrs. Bartlett for all her work organizing a “heart-y” afternoon of fun and activity!
