Two students and two teachers from Callie Kirkpatrick Elementary School in Menifee teamed up to win $5,000 on the Prime Video competition series, “Play-Doh Squished,” the Menifee Union School District announced.

Students Rayden Isaiah Duson and Stephon “Prince” Pieters asked teachers Alex Friedrichs and Amy Runner to be on the studio stage with them. Together they formed the “Callie Superstars” for the series involving physical challenges and a sculpture competition.

Through their creation, “Sweet Rescue”, Duson and Pieters invented a story that took place in Wheatfield Park in Menifee, where critters and creatures worked together to rescue a caterpillar friend. Friedrichs and Runner coached the students throughout the dessert-themed episode.

Rayden and Stephon said at a recent school board meeting they would use their winnings to buy school supplies for their teachers and a Nintendo Switch video game.
