Halloween Thriller Dance
The students are learning the dance from Michael Jackson's Thriller video. They are really into it. Even students who normally don't like to participate in PE are doing it. We are going to have a contest between houses this Friday when we host our Kick Off Event. I wish I could upload more pics and videos because I want everyone to see our students shine.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

I worked with Mr. Mashek on the FUTP 60 initiative. We asked the students what they wanted to see more of in PE and many of the girls stated they would like more dancing. In light of Halloween being around the corner, we thought incorporating the Thriller dance would get the girls more involved. But what was surprising was that it was actually more popular with the boys!!!!

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

I think we will be incorporating more dance throughout the school year.
