Dance in the Mornings
Students were offered a time during homeroom in the mornings to dance in the auditorium by playing "Just Dance". Students are also permitted in the gym for activities like basketball, volleyball, kickball, etc.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Students are more excited to come to school in the morning. Before, they dreaded going to homeroom, but now they can opt out of going to homeroom and begin engaging in physical activity.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

I, along with the other PE teachers, will continue to allow the students to engage in this program in the mornings. We hope to expand it outside once the weather is nice again.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

At first it was hard to get students involved, but after they saw how much fun other kids were having, they were ready to jump on board.
