Kites to the skies at Westside Elementary

First grader Zachary Gainey eyes his shark kite. Also pictured in the background is Savannah Smallwood.Plenty of colorful kites depicting lady bugs, butterflies, sharks and Spiderman, to name a few, flew through the air at Westside Elementary School in Glen St. Mary on March 16.

With little wind to lend a hand, children, including  third grader Lillia Munn above, sought out plenty of running room to dash back and forth in hopes of keeping their kites aloft.

A number of parents joined the fun, often untangling kites strings, keeping them out of trees or otherwise assisting with the endeavor. Groups of students took turns occupying the open field on the campus’ east side for the annual outdoor event.
