Temple Elementary gets a jump on the competition

Temple Elementary School in La Puente will be a busy place the next couple of days.

The Hacienda La Puente Unified school will hold a Kindergarten Roundup from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. Wednesday. Parents can register their little ones in the school cafeteria.

On Valentine’s Day, the school will be jumping for joy. Well actually, they’re hosting a Jump for Heart event on the school blacktop. The fundraiser for the American Heart Association begins at 9 a.m.

The money is used to support lifesaving heart and stroke research. Students ask friends and family for donations.

This program also promotes physical fitness and teaches the value of community service to students and their families. Come on out and support our kids.
