On Wednesday and Thursday, we are celebrating our Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser. Students are enjoying obstacle courses, zombie tag, build-your-own-hopscotch, healthy refreshments, the sugar sequence challenge, and, of course, jumping rope.

Corn Syrup Painting

For Jump Rope for Heart month, Ozone teachers have been encouraging children to be more thoughtful about the amount of sugar they consume (especially in their drinks). Therefore, instead of using corn syrup as a cooking ingredient, we mixed it with food coloring and painted.
