Jump Rope for Hope

Students at the Tisbury School recently raised $4,147 to support the Red Cross Haiti relief efforts through a jump rope event, held for all grades.

Just after the earthquake hit Jan. 12, two fourth grade teachers, Pamela Herman and Veronika VanDe Geer, and their students saw the many children who now had lost everything, and initiated a jump rope for hope event. Children generated sponsors to support their jumping during each gym class. The $4,147 check was presented to the Red Cross just before school vacation.
