We only have one heart!  I want to take care of mine and help people take care of theirs too!  This year, Port St. Joe Elementary School set a personal goal to raise money for the American Heart Association by participating in the Jump Rope for Heart event at our school.  We also challenged our students by telling them if we reach our goal I would allow them to tape me to the wall. I am very proud to say not only did we meet that goal but we went over by $1,000 dollars.  This year our students raised a total $5,601.50 for Jump Rope for Heart.  I would like to take this time and thank all those students who participated in Jump Rope for Heart and thank all the family and friends for supporting this wonderful cause. 

Thank You! 

Coach Quinn and Mrs. Jewell Hopper
