Jump Rope for Heart is Back

Jump rope for heart is a community service learning program which teaches kids empathy for others and how to fundraise money to support a great cause.  It also teaches kids importance of heart health, physical activity and how to jump rope.  Your students will be coming home with an envelope to collect money for people who have sick hearts and well as supporting cardiovascular research.  The easiest way is to sign up online  

Please email Allison Sabat at with questions.  

Thank you so much to Emerald City Opera for bringing the opera, Cinderella, to SPE for our 3rd-5th grades. This assembly was entertaining as well as a great learning experience.

SPE Mission/Vision

about 1 year ago

A mission statement describes in simple terms, but with carefully chosen, powerful words, the purpose of an organization. It can also describe what the organization intends to accomplish. Strawberry Park Elementary’s new adopted mission is Engaged Learners, Demonstrating Character. To support students in fulfilling the mission, teachers will focus on different character traits each trimester. 

During 2nd trimester, we will explore and learn about honesty. Honest people are trustworthy, dependable, and respected by others. An honest person tells the truth, regardless of the consequences. As America's first President, George Washington said in his Farewell Address, "honesty is always the best policy."
