Teachers surprise students with a reading inspired flash mob

Liberty Elementary School teachers and staff treated students to a reading inspired flash mob to spark excitement for Read Across America Month and to remind them about the joys and adventures that a great book can bring.

Assistant Principal Mr. Robert England triggered the celebration, launching into the choreography of “Gotta Keep Reading,” a parody song of “I Gotta Feeling” by The Black Eyed Peas. One by one, teachers joined in, dancing with their favorite children’s books and encouraging students to clap along.

Following the dance, Interim Superintendent of Schools Carol Napolitano led the students in the Reading Pledge, a promise to love reading for the rest of their lives.
