Jumping for the record books

Students at Toll Middle School on Wednesday took part in a nationwide effort to break the world record for the most people doing jumping jacks at the same time.

The event was sponsored by First Lady Michelle Obama in conjunction with National Geographic and her national “Let's Move” campaign.

There was no official word if the jumping event was successful as of Wednesday.
