Friday Funk You Up!!

Our school does school announcements in the gym on Fridays where student achievements are celebrated, school song is sung, and any daily reminders are given. One Friday the Kindergarten teachers asked to stay after announcements to dance with their kids as a reward for good behavior. That is when the idea for Friday Funk You Up began. I challenged my PE Teirs group to begin promoting the program with emails and flyers we hung up throughout the school. Soon more and more classes were staying, dancing, sweating, and starting their day in a fun and positive way. Now it is rare that a class will miss a Friday Funk You Up session.
