Memorial Parkway Elementary recently held the first ever Relay Recess (part of Relay for Life) for their students. Parents, teachers, community members and students came together for one day to walk and participate in fun physical activities. The day began with an opening ceremony parade, and continued throughout the school day with fundraising activities for each grade level. The Memorial Parkway Elementary community raised $9,000 to benefit the American Cancer Society. The Relay Recess event was co-chaired by Nina Gutierrez and Valerie Reeves.
