While students typically are glued to their seats for engaging classroom lessons, Crescentview teachers were forced to get taped to a wall after pupils completed a Jump Rope for Heart challenge.
Jump Rope for Heart took over the school on April 18th, with Grades 3 & 4 classes spending two periods each, skipping rope and being active.
Tied into the event was a fundraising goal of $2000 for the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada, with an incentive for students to hit the target by rewarding them with a chance to duct tape their teachers to their gymnasium wall.
Not only did the school reach their goal, they raised $2780 for the cause, and on April 27th, a handful of teachers were stuck to one of the school walls like flies in a trap.
"I'm super proud. I think that we have an amazing school here, and I think it's just awesome. It just goes to show that we can set the bar even higher next year," says French immersion Physical Education Teacher Brittany Armstrong-Bernier.
Although it was just a Grades 3 & 4 fundraiser, the entire school came down to watch their teachers get taped up.
"I think the kids did an amazing job, and it was a really fun event," She continues. "Every class stayed, and they all had a great time,"
Teaching students and adults how to keep a healthy heart and body was centre stage at Crescentview as teachers Madam Guimond-Low, Mr. Botterill and Mr. Gemmell took one for the team and were plastered to a wall, all in the spirit of rewarding students for a job well done.
