Elementary School Hosts White Hot Heat Party

The students were confident the Heat will make it to the championship



    Students at Edison Park Elementary School didn’t have to step outside to feel Miami’s White Hot Heat.

    As part of White Hot Heat day, DJ Dale, Burnie, the Heat dancers, and the Xtreme Team hosted a pep rally to reward the students for a productive school year and to show support for the Heat. The team is playing its second game against the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals Wednesday night.

    “They were happy to be out of class, that’s one, but secondly, they wanted to touch and feel and be a part of the Miami heat family,” said DJ Dale of the Miami Heat.

    The hallways were covered with posters made by the kids, and the cafeteria was packed in a sea of white as the little heat fans cheered for their Miami Heat.

    “It is a wonderful experience for my students because so many times they may not have the opportunity to go to a heat game, they only get a chance to maybe see them on television,” said principal of Edison Park Elementary School, Carla Patrick.

    Many of the kids felt like they were attending a real game at the school, which is only a few miles north of the AmericanAirlines Arena.
