World Record Attempts
Final Result as of September 2018:
Conrad Weiser Middle school has been denied a world record due to mistakes on paper forms. We know, in our hearts, that we beat the existing World Record by nearly 100 participants, however, we will not be officially recognized for our accomplishment due to a paperwork error. We congratulate our students for their professionalism and character during the entire process. We again thank our sponsors who helped make our attempt possible. With the right motivation, we may attempt to break the record in the future.
Over 750 participants tested their skill and luck at hopscotch this past Wednesday in an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for most people playing hopscotch simultaneously. The previous record consisted of 650 individuals associated with a school district from the west coast. After hours of effort and input from many of the CWMS faculty and staff, all required forms of evidence were collected in our record-breaking attempt. In addition to videos and photographs, sign-in sheets, clicker counters and interviews led by Reading Eagle correspondent Matthew Nojiri are going to be submitted as proof of our successful attempt. The CWMS students, faculty and staff look forward to hearing from the official Guinness World Record headquarters sometime this summer to confirm our attempt and put Conrad Weiser Middle School in the books!
