Conley, Mackeben students "Jump with Jill" next week

Students at Mackeben and Conley Elementary schools will be jumping and moving during class next week, when the national kids show "Jump with Jill" visits District 158.

Created by Registered Dietitian and musician Jill Jayne, the Rock 'N Roll assembly teaches kids about nutrition and exercise. The performance uses techniques, like catchy songs and trendy wardrobes, to get kids engaged with its healthy-living message.

Kids typically are left with reminders to eat breakfast daily, exercise frequently and consume healthy foods consistently. Jayne has performed nearly 1,000 shows for 250,000 kids across the nation. Her program has been featured on Sprout PBS, NPR and Nickelodeon.

The event is Wednesday, Oct. 17. For more information, contact Square Barn Elemntary Parent Teacher Association President Shannon Mitchell at (224) 545-8908 or
