Crazy Race Days at Altmar Elementary School in the Altmar-Parish-Williamstown School District marks the end of a school year and the beginning of summer vacation. Friendly competition and challenging red, white and blue-themed events all came together for two crazy days of team participation and fun.
Grade-level teams competed in eight different events ranging from a Lady Liberty inspired running race and a Tug of Peace to a John Hancock Relay and a United States Water Conservation Run. Each participant received a blue ribbon for their participation, but the fun memories made at Altmar’s Crazy Race Days will last a long, long time.
