K-7 students and staff across the Holland Public Schools district took part in "The Big Crunch" on Oct. 13.
The purpose of this event was to break the world record for eating the most apples at one time.
HPS joined schools across Michigan to simultaneously bite into a crisp Michigan apple.
What a marvelous way to encourage healthy eating and promote Michigan agriculture!
As of this writing, it is unknown if the record was broken.
