Learning to Give through community service
- Jump Rope for Heart 1st-5th Grades
Since 1992, St. Richard's Episcopal School has contributed over $25,000 to the American Heart Association through Jump Rope for Heart. Students in the first through fifth grades obtain sponsors for the project. The curriculum includes teaching various skills of jump roping, including team jumping, as well as heart-healthy life skills. At the end of the training, the students "Jump Rope for Heart" and contribute their pledges to the American Heart Association to fund research for curing heart disease.
- Hoops for Heart 6th-8th Grades
St. Richard's Episcopal School began the program "Hoops for Heart" in 2004. Similar to Jump Rope for Heart, middle school students learn the skills of basketball and free throw shooting prior to obtaining pledges for the number of successful baskets they shoot. During a class period, students are allowed to shoot continuously. Once tallied and collected, pledges are sent to the American Heart Association. The curriculum also includes instruction for healthy hearts and lifestyles.
- Muscular Dystrophy 3, 4, and 5 year olds
The little ones at St. Richard's Episcopal School are joyous about contributing to Community Service. They are taught about Muscular Dystrophy as a disease, as well as respect for those physically challenged. They also collect pledges from friends and family and participate in a "Hop-A-Thon." After a class period of hopping, all donations are forwarded to the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
- Komen's Race for the Cure
The St. Richard's Episcopal School family has supported Komen Foundation's Race for the Cure emotionally and financially for many years. Karen Rhodes, a former SRS parent and Assistant to the Director of Admission, was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer in 1997. Following her death in the spring of 1998, St. Richard's students, parents, alumni, faculty and staff have participated in the Race for the Cure in memory of Karen Rhodes and others in their lives touched by cancer.
