Cent. Pa. students try to hopscotch to record

WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) — Students at a central Pennsylvania elementary school slated to close hope they can hopscotch their way into the Guinness Book of World Records before the school’s doors are shut for good.

The students at Round Hills Elementary School in Lycoming County were joined by parents, administrators and community members in trying to set the record for most people playing hopscotch simultaneously.

The Sun-Gazette of Williamsport (http://bit.ly/12ZgoRp ) reports there were 367 participants in the record-breaking attempt Monday. It will take about six weeks for Guinness to verify whether the Round Hills hoppers broke the current record of 358 set two years ago in London.

The school is set to close at the end of the academic year. Principal Cindy Schuyler says the goal was to close Round Hills with a celebration.
