Dunbar Elementary students celebrated the end of the school year with a little face painting, potato sack racing and the electric slide during Field Day on Tuesday. More than 35 parents also lent their support, donning Dunbar T-shirts and corralling excited students between events. “I can’t explain how important it is for parents to get involved,” said Dunbar PTSA President Shondra Carter (pictured above). “Children model their behavior after us, so if we have a good time, they will, too.” The smiles were non-stop, especially when Lil’ Jimmy (“The Youth Problem Solver“) grabbed the microphone and led cheers as well as group dancing in front of the school. But we’ll let the video tell the story.
