Skipathon 2015 with Skippy John


In May St. Pius X had a skipathon with Skippy John. First, we went outside and he gave us all a skipping rope. He let us skip any way that we wanted to until everybody had been given a rope. Then he taught us how to double jump which was when you had to turn the rope quickly twice and jump once. He taught us how to run into and jump over the rope while he and the teacher were turning it. We had to be careful not to leave a gap between each person. It took us a long time to get it right but that just made it funnier. We had a great time!
