The morning event gave teachers and students a chance to have fun and enjoy the end of the year.
The roar of the crowd more than made up for the silence of the engineless soap-box derby cars in the parking lot at
Pathways Elementary on Friday, May 12.
Family and friends held signs and cheered the 48, fifth-grade students who participated in the school’s 9th derby.
Callie Sours held up a brightly colored sign easy for her brother Colton Sours to see as he and his teammate Kylie Watson coasted their car down the ramp and past the crowd.
In the spirit of the event there was music, popcorn and snow cones for viewers to enjoy from their curbside seats.
“We just finished the statewide tests and this event is always a nice way for the school to exhale and have a little fun,” event sponsor Matt Coleman said.
