Jeffersonville Elementary Participates in "Let's Jump" Wednesday

Jeffersonville Elementary School is set to participate in the nationwide initiative, "Let's Jump," led by Michelle Obama today at 2 p.m.

Jeffersonville Elementary School strives to encourage the development of each and every one of our students.  This includes academic, social, and athletic development.  In an effort to involve our students in a nation-wide accomplishment, we are participating in Let’s Jump.

Let’s Jump is an initiative led by First Lady Michelle Obama and National Geographic Kids. 

The goal is to break the world record for the most number of people doing jumping jacks. They have a twenty-four hour window to complete the task.

The activity is simple.  We have to do jumping jacks for one minute nonstop.
