Hampstead Hill Academy Students Visit White House

On October 12, 2011 more than 100 Hampstead Hill Academy students and staff participated in a physical education event at the White House. First Lady Michelle Obama hosted hundreds of area students in an attempt to break the Guinness Book of World Records record for the most people doing jumping jacks for one minute in a 24-hour period.

This was the U.S. kick-off for a worldwide attempt to break the record held by more than 24,000 people jumping jacks. The event highlighted the First Lady’s “Let’s Move” healthy living initiative.
