United Way Bed Races

Two Waterbury schools participated in the United Way’s Bed Race October 14th. Hopeville School and West Side Middle School had the highest level of participation in the recent employee fundraising campaign for the United Way, and the reward was representing the school district in the races. Both schools presented colorfully decorated beds, with West Side adopting a “West Side Warios” theme, dressing much like the video game character Mario, and Hopeville donning pink clothes in a “Hopeville Goes Pink” theme for breast cancer awareness. Darren Schwartz raced alongside the Hopeville team, and Board President Liz Brown was on hand to cheer on both schools.  Hopeville advanced to the second round despite losing a wheel off its original bed during its heat.
