Students jump for heart health

The PACCT Jump-a-thon and Hoop-a-thon was held at Newcomerstown Middle School Feb. 19. Eighth graders raised $154, seventh graders raised $321.55 and sixth graders $188; for a total of $714.55 to be given to the American Heart Association. Top money raisers for this event, who will be treated to lunch at Terry's Pizza Shoppe, were Logan Taylor, Makenzie Moner, Kirsti Buss and Corey Cosner. Congratulations to the seventh graders who won a pizza party courtesy of Terry's, as well as a dance during related arts classes for being the grade level to bring in the most donations.
