Jump Rope for the Playground update

The Miller students and Placentino 2nd graders did an amazing job with the Jump-a-thon event held yesterday, March 1st. All their fundraising, jump roping, and dancing efforts culminated in their accomplishment of raising almost $40,000 in funds to go toward a new playground for the Miller School.

The gymnasium was filled with lots of smiling kids, jumping and dancing throughout the day. Prizes will be awarded to students once all the bookkeeping and counting activities are completed.

Much thanks go to the elementary physical education teachers, Todd Kiley and Jason MacDonald, for all their work organizing and running this event.

A big thank you goes to all the Miller and Placentino students, their families and sponsors for all their efforts and support!

The Playground Project thanks Long Distance Tire, Natick Dental Partners, Elite Gymnastics, Dancing Arts Center, Holliston Medical, Hopkinton Vision, and MBF Printing for supporting Jump Rope for the Playground with their sponsorship.

Also, much thanks goes to John Palterini from Fiske’s for donating gift certificates as prizes and for all his continued and generous support of this project.
