• Tennyson Knolls Principal Finds Unique Way to Raise Money


    It’s become tradition at Tennyson Knolls that Principal Tom Elliott challenges students to raise money for Jump Rope for Heart with unique incentives. This year’s incentive was to see Elliott dress as what he called, “a pretty princess”.

    The kids did their part and so did Elliott.

    An annual event, Jump Rope for Heart asks students across the nation to raise funds for the American Heart Association by testing their jump rope skills and endurance after collecting donations from community members.

    “The students like to see results; last year I had to dress like a clown and the year before I was taped to the wall when they met the goals we set,” said Elliott.

    The goal for this year was to raise $1,800, but students went above and beyond, raising $3,567.

    Elliott remained a “pretty princess” during lunch time and at the assembly where the school celebrated together.
