Mount View Middle School students have town councils to represent each grade. This year the sixth-grade town council coordinated an American Heart Association Jump-a-thon. With the whole sixth grade participating in the project, students raised $1,280, most of which went directly to the American Heart Association. The town council designated 10 percent of the money for charitable work within our community.
Sarah Marshall's $75 total made her the top money-raiser, and Aldema Ridge's advisory class raised the most money.
The students were organized into teams, and Shelly Williams' team, the Jumping Kangaroos, was the team that raised the most money. Dorothea Beckham's advisory class won a poster contest to promote the Jump-a-thon.
