MOUNT PLEASANT, N.Y. -- The Kensico School gymnasium was transformed into a whirlwind of activity recently for the school's annual Jump Rope for Heart event.

The students were divided up into sections and spread out, playing different games. On the stage, girls took turns hula-hooping, while a group of students hopped onto the rock-climbing wall and tried not to fall off.

Pair after pair ran through the obstacle course; others played with balls or skipped ropes. Some of the other activities included rope-climbing and paddle ball games.

Jump Rope for Heart is a longtime tradition at Kensico. The physical education staff works together to teach students about heart health and the importance of movement. The event is a celebration of movement and allows the students to enjoy their favorite activities.

Students in each grade remained active for an hour; the third- and fourth-graders each spent time in the gym in the morning, while the fifth-grade class had some exercise fun in the afternoon.
