Allentown School District’s Fifth Annual Elementary Instrumental Concert and Third Annual Jump Rope Tournament will be held on Tuesday, May 8, from 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. at the PPL Plaza in downtown Allentown.

The Elementary Instrumental group features a combination of band and orchestra students in grades 3, 4, and 5 from throughout the District’s elementary schools. In conjunction with their concert, the Health and Physical Education Specialists have prepared the top 3 jump rope students from each school to show off their talents and compete in the Second Annual ASD Jump Rope Tournament. This year the newly formed student dance team from Union Terrace will also perform.

“This is a great way to show off how exceptional the District’s elementary students are by featuring the musical talents and the athletic ability of these children all rolled into one enjoyable event,” explains District Arts Administrator Maryann Gross.

For months, ASD elementary students have been jumping rope in the competitive fun as they work together with the American Heart Association’s annual Jump Rope for Heart program. Students will be showing off their jump rope skills of how many jumps they can do in a one minute time period. The list of “jump rope” winners will be posted on the elementary school websites. A basket of heart-healthy games will be awarded to the winner of the Jump Rope Tournament on May 9th. The District thanks the ASD Foundation for providing transportation funds for this event.

In the case of inclement weather, the event will be held on Tuesday, May 15th.

The PPL Plaza is located at 701 Hamilton Street in Allentown.
