• JUMP ROPE FOR HEART
     
    **The Jump Rope For Heart prizes are currently in the UPS wearhouse.  As soon as schools are allowed to reopen, the prizes will be delivered to NPE.  Once this happens, I can set up a plan and send it out to everyone for distribution of prizes.  I apologize for the delay.**
     
    Our 23rd annual Jump Rope For Heart event will be held on Friday, February 28th, 2020.  The students will jump rope in an effort to raise money to fight against heart disease.  Last year we set a school record and raised $20,218!
