It Takes Heart to be a Hero!

On Friday, February 23rd, Mrs. Kathy Schoenwetter lead LeRoy Elementary School students in Jump Rope for Heart with Mr. Mark Tate as our local, favorite DJ.  Leading up to JRFH, Mrs. Schoenwetter’s enthusiasm was contagious throughout every grade level. Students learned the benefits of jumping rope while raising funds for children with special heart needs.  Through Mrs. Schoenwetter’s GRIT & PERSEVERANCE she has unselfishly taught over 20 years of LeRoy students about Jump Rope for Heart, service for others, and helped to raise over $215,204 since 1997. Mrs. Schoenwetter is our Hero!  We thank her for all of her service to LeRoy Schools as she approaches retirement at the end of the school year. THANK YOU for teaching our students GOOD HABITS and HEALTH & how to live STRONG and HEALTHY LIVES!
