Teacher Sky Dives into Carnival

Teacher Sky Dives into Carnival

A teacher from Harmon Elementary School will make a daring entrance into Friday night's PTA carnival.

Jim Dolan and three other friends will jump from a plane and land in a space just behind the school during the party. The carnival benefits the school and the Parent-Teacher Association. Dolan is the school's physical education teacher and a professional skydiver with more than 4,000 jumps under his belt. This is not the first time he's jumped at the event, he's been jumping and landing at the carnival for more than 10 years.

The carnival is from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. but the jump is set for 6 p.m.
