Nicole's Picture Danielle Greenwood Danielle Greenwood has been a member of the Forbes Flyers Jump Rope Team since 3rd grade. Danielle is also one of the three co-captains on the team. Over the years Danielle has blossomed into a confident, dedicated and productive member on the team. She has won numerous awards on both the regional and national level at USA Jump Rope competitions and has given back to the team through her leadership, creativity and patience. She has also shared her talents through workshops and demonstrations both in and out of the state of Connecticut. Her talents have also given her the opportunity to compete at the Apollo in New York through the National Double Dutch League and also through state Double Dutch competitions with the American Double Dutch League. She has performed at professional and university level basketball games for both the men and women teams. She has given back to the community by participating in charitable events while instructing and teaching young people about the benefits jump rope can provide. As she moves into her college experiences at UCONN we are confident that she has a strong foundation from which she can continue to build a life that will bring her continued success because her wings are ready and “We Know She Can Fly!"
Good Luck Danielle

Lauren's Picture Priscilla Forrest Priscilla has been a member of the Forbes Flyers Jump Rope Team since third grade. Priscilla has also been my student in elementary physical education so I have known her for 13 years. During those years I have watched her grow in so many ways. She is one of three co-captains on the team; and as a co-captain she has to lead practices with quotes, stretches and drills. The sport of jump rope has given Priscilla the opportunity to travel and compete in many different states and for several different organizations. She has competed with USA Jump Rope since beginning her membership and she has qualified each year to compete at the national level bringing home medals in both Double Dutch speed and freestyle. She has also competed at the Apollo in New York for the National Double Dutch League and state Double Dutch competitions for the American Double Dutch League. She has been an instructor for high level workshop both in and out of the state of Connecticut and she has performed at halftime games for high school, college and professional teams. She has been a mentor to our younger jumpers, guiding them with instruction and patience. Her experiences on the team will serve her well as she moves into her college life at Tunxis Community College in Connecticut. Our motto on the team is “We Believe We Can Fly” and as Priscilla leaves our nest we know she will soar high.
Good Luck Priscilla

Margarets Picture Margaret Pelchat

Margaret has been a member on the Forbes Flyers Jump Rope Team since third grade.  Margaret is one of three co-captains on the team.  I have known Margaret through her school years as her teacher on the elementary level and as her coach on the jump rope team.  I have watched Margaret grow into confident, responsible and dedicated young lady with many talents.  Margaret is a member of her high school honor society; she plays in orchestra and serves as the secretary of the Latin Club.  Margaret has benefited from a sport that encourages leadership, teamwork and commitment.  She has qualified each year to compete at the USA Jump Rope National Competition and she has brought home medals and ribbons in recognition of this accomplishment.  She has also competed at the Apollo in New York through the National Double Dutch League and at state Double Dutch competitions through the American Double Dutch League.  But I believe her ability to lead, teach and mentor the members on her team has been one of her highest achievements.  The opportunity to give back is a learning experience for both the teacher and the student.  Jump Rope fosters character traits and provides opportunities that will benefit Margaret as she transitions into her college life at SUNY, State University of New York.  We know she will fly high, because "We Believe She Can Fly!"

Good Luck Margaret
