    Students in grades 1st-5th,  gathered in the gym for the annual Jump Rope for Heart on Wednesday, January 25. Each year, the students at Nemaha Central Elementary School raise money for the American Hearth Association. They do this by asking their family and friends for donations. Mr. Cory Bass, physical education teacher, organizes the event and it is a huge success every year.

    After raising money, students go to the gym for activities. They jump rope, climb the rock wall, walk around the gym, work out to an exercise video, and they have a healthy snack of apples with their friends. There are also prizes for raising money set up by the American Heart Association.  Some of the prizes were: $15 is a jump rope, $25 for a tee shirt, and so on. Those are not the only rewards, though. The students get to play, have fun with their friends, and help save lives.

    This year the goal was to raise $6,500. If the students reached that goal, Mr. Bass will let them chose one of these three options: Mr. Bass wears a dress, two extra class game days, Mr. Bass and Dr. Beck get pied, or Mr. Bass and Dr. Beck kiss a pig. The Nemaha Central Elementary students surpassed the goal by raising around $7,400! They chose to have Mr. Bass and Dr. Beck kiss a pig and were also allowed to pie Mr. Bass.  The students enjoy this annual event and would like to thank those who supported their goal to raise money for the American Heart Association.

    "I liked the rotation where you jumped rope and where you danced,"  said Ella Huerter, 2nd grader.

   "I liked the music that they played," said Samatha Holthaus, a 5th grader.
