Have you seen the Jump Rope for Heart posters? Be sure to listen attentively at the kick off assembly this coming Monday where you’ll get to hear about all the ways you can fundraise for beneficial programs that assist in heart and brain diseases. The more you fundraise, the more awesome prizes you can win at the same time as saving lives! That is definitely something to jump about.

William Hall was the first black person to receive the Victoria Cross. He was born in Nova Scotia to former slaves who left the United States because of the War of 1812. He became a sailor in his twenties, eventually joining the Royal Navy.

He was awarded the Victoria Cross after securing a British garrison in Lucknow, India, while serving on HMS Shannon. Hall was one of two sailors to survive the attack, but was the only one able to continue to fight. He fought until the garrison was safe.
