(Oct. 20, 2011) A.W. Becker Elementary School will once again be participating in the Jump Rope For Heart program to raise funds to help children with special heart conditions. The program is sponsored by the American Heart Association each year and encourages students to solicit pledges from family and friends as they jump rope for a cause.
