DES Jump Rope for Heart Kick-Off

Davis Elementary held their Jump Rope for Heart kick-off assembly on Monday, Jan. 30.   Students were encouraged to “Join the Zoo Crew” and be a heart hero by participating in the annual event.   During the assembly, Rory, the Zoo Crew Lion, visited with students to encourage their participation.  Each student that  raises $5 will receive a zoo crew character that hangs on a lanyard.  Students can earn other thank-you gifts based on the amount of donations they collect.

If you would like to donate, or register online to participate in the event, go to  We will collect donations through Friday, Feb. 24.  Join us as we support the American Heart Association
