Jump Rope for Heart
Raising Funds for the American Heart Association
Wills Point Middle School is busy with their Jump Rope for Heart campaign! Each year the middle school jumps for the sixth grade science teacher, Mr. Robertson, a heart transplant recipient. The parents have been stopping by their child’s PE class time to watch their student perform amazing feats with a simple jump rope! The goal of the middle school is to raise $3,000 dollars! These funds are used by the American Heart Association for researching life-saving procedures for heart patients. If you are interested in helping the middle school meet their goal then please visit www.heart,org/jump or stop by the middle school to make a donation.
Sixth Grade Science club
The Wills Point Middle School, 6th grade Science club were recently invited to attend a lecture by Stephen Ritz. Mr. Ritz is an educator and urban farmer who has transformed portions of the Bronx, New York into a virtual living classroom using aeroponic gardening. Students were treated to an awesome Pizza supper at Campisis' provided by their event sponsor Mrs. Sandy Guest. She had also reserved seating for our group in front of the stage. The science club had purchased a Tower Garden from Mrs. Guest as an ongoing project this year. Before the event students had an opportunity to speak with a horticulturist about how to pollenate and care for their plants. The best part was a motivational talk by Mr. Ritz. At the end he called the students on stage and spent a great deal of time talking and interacting with them. It was exciting and motivational to the point they did not want to leave. Mr. Ritz and many of the adults present constantly praised our students for their manners and great attitude. The group was escorted by 6th grade Science teacher Mr. Robertson and 6th grade ELA teacher Mrs. Tate. For more information on Stephen Ritz google The Green Bronx Machine.
