Hawthorn Elementary School participated in the World Record attempt for the most people reading simultaneously at multiple locations. Just for your information, the old record was 155,528 students from 737 schools in the United Kingdom who read William Wordsworth’s poem, “Daffodils” on March 19, 2004. For our attempt, 483,527 students in 2,106 locations, 50 states, and 24 countries were registered to take part. We were the only Park Hill school registered to take part in this event!!
It was fun to watch the children be a part of this (I was a witness- you need 1 witness for every 20 children). Now all the forms get sent in and we will find out in January if we broke the record.
