Wilkins Elementary Raises Money for American Heart Association, Jump Rope for Heart

In February 2015, Wilkins Elementary students participated in Jump Rope for Heart, through the American Heart Association.  Wilkins Elementary students raised $400!!  The Wilkins teachers also participated in National Wear Red Day the beginning of February and raised $92.00.   With the help of many Wilkins students and staff, we were able to exceed last years amount!  

Wilkins Elementary also raised the most money in the district for this event!!

Any student who donated was then able to help 'stick' Mr. Kotts to the gym door.  On Wednesday, March 18th many students helped duct tape Mr. Kotts to the gym door.  

Thank you all the students and staff who participated in Wilkins Elementary Jump Rope for Heart this year!!!
