Get Ready, Set, Jump comes to Cooke

April 5, 2016

On March 18, students from George L. Cooke Elementary School were were treated to a wonderful performance by April Vollm, the creator of Ready, Set, Jump.

 April is a Physical Comedic Performer who has traveled the world entertaining audiences. Ms. Vollm shared her experiences with the United States Air Force and traveling with the circus. Her most important point, however, is for kids to stay active and eat a healthy and nutritious diet.

Some of the many highlights of this assembly were teaching our volunteers to juggle, jump roping, and April's agility and strength with the trapeze bar.



Exercise, hydration, and rest…what a good lesson for any age group! Cooke Elementary School would like to thank the Cooke-Rutherford PTO for funding this exciting and informative assembly for the students.
