All Lincoln Elementary School students took part today Monday in the CAHPERD Jamba Jump Day Event - a California attempt to break the Guinness World Record for “Most People Jumping/Skipping Rope at the Same Time.”  

Lincoln Junior High P.E. instructor Cindy Hill coordinated the successful schoolwide event.

Lincoln principal Sonya Arellano was very pleased with the event.  

“Any kind of extra physical activity for our students is great,” she said.  “And if the students are lucky enough to have been a part of breaking the world’s record, they’ll be very proud and excited.”

 “It was really cool jumping rope with everyone!” said 5th grade student Bianca Kucher.

More than 2,000 sites throughout the State of California participated, including schools, nonprofit organizations, businesses, service organizations and clubs.  The event was coordinated via live webcast and broadcast online.
