Desert Vista Elementary School helps break Guinness World Record in sport stacking


Desert Vista Elementary School students learned how they stack up when the Mustangs learned they helped break the Guinness World Record in sport stacking.

Some 638,503 stackers from 2,734 schools participated in the global event, according to a press release.

During the course of Guinness World Records Day, sport stackers from all reaches of the world were stacking various pyramids in prescribed patterns at lightning speed for at least 30 minutes, all combined with a variety of fitness activities, the release states.

The event took place Nov. 14 at Desert Vista Elementary, but it wasn’t until just recently the school received the official announcement the record had been broken.

Sport stacking with speed stacks help improve reaction time, hand-eye coordination, concentration and focus. The DVES competition was coordinated by the school’s P.E. Teacher, Melinda Rumple.

Desert Vista is a Be Kind school where each day students and staff practice the 10 tenets that make a difference in the lives of others. Each day DVES students proudly share how they actively demonstrate their kindness to others by being respectful, being compassionate, or simply by being a friend!
