  English teacher Jennifer Walker said the goal was to break the current record of 795 people. "Our target is 1,400 to 1,500 people doing the wave," Walker said.

  The unofficial count was 1,359 people, a little short of the goal, but still enough to smash the old record by 564.

  PHS Sophomore Ashley Heuer, a member of the world record organizing team, said the attempt "is exciting. There are a lot of kids, more than I thought would be here."

   Suttles and Linn watched as the break-dance wave made its way through 16 serpentine rows of participants.

  The judges kept a close eye as the wave made the turn at the end of each of the rows and made its way to the next turn.

  According to official judges Prescott Councilwoman Mary Ann Suttles and United Way Executive Director Tammy Linn, the PHS students and staff members successfully completed the longest continuous break-dance hand wave.

  Suttles said the effort was "wave fun. This is the first time I have been asked to be a judge for an effort to set a World Record. Everything has to be done correctly."

  "I think this is one of those events that the students will look back on in 20 years and remember," McCraley said. "I am ecstatic to see how many kids and staff members participated."

  Members of the PHS Parent, Teacher, Student Association helped gather the signatures of every student, adult and staff member on the football field.

  With this successful effort, Walker is already looking forward to next year, when "the senior class will try to set a new world record for 'head, shoulders, knees and toes,'" she said.
