From February 25 through March 1, P.E. classes at Thomas Jefferson and Berg Elementary Schools participated in the Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser. The students asked members of the community for donations and all proceeds went to the American Heart Association. As a reward for their work, students at TJ were allowed to spray teachers and administrators with silly string.
