JFK Students STACK UP!

Thirty-three JFK Middle School students in the Bethpage Union Free School District participated with 412,259 students worldwide in National Cup Stacking Day, helping to set a brand new Guinness World Record for “Most People Sport Stacking at Multiple Locations on One Day.”
Students representing over 28 countries competed in this event, and the JFK students are now included in the Guinness World Records book for their participation.

The World Sport Stacking Association (WSSA) STACK UP! occurs every year on Guinness World Records Day and is an opportunity for schools, libraries, and youth organizations on every continent to involve their communities in a day of sport stacking, fitness, and fun. The STACK UP! allows 30 minutes of sport stacking for each stacker who participates from a school or organization.

JFK teachers Deborah Muller and Hanae Okita facilitated the event, and all students received a World Record Day certificate. The students’ participation in National Cup Stacking Day was a 21st Century Scholars activity.
