ONTARIO – The student body of May Roberts Elementary spent Thursday attempting to join a group that includes Charles Helmke, Ayanna Williams and Jackie Miley.

Helmke is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for having 97.5 percent of his body tattooed. Williams makes the book for growing her fingernails to 18 feet 9 inches. Miley holds the record for most teddy bears as her home is filled with 8,026.

And, with the proper paperwork and verification, students at May Roberts will enter the book for a giant game of balloon tag. The school sent in paperwork to compete for entry three months ago.

Approximately 400 students walked to Ontario High . . .
