Staff at Southbury Elementary School recently made a video for students dancing to "Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)"

At Southbury Elementary School, students are recognized and rewarded for showing exceptional character each quarter. 

The staff at Southbury uses a STEP system to monitor student behavior in the following categories: disruptive conduct, inappropriate hallway behavior, inappropriate physical conduct, and defiance and disrespect. If students receive less than two STEPS in each category, they are able to attend Sharkfest at the end of the quarter. 

Southbury's coaches, Ryan Parr and Jacob Winder, play music and entertain the students. The students dance and have fun together for 30 minutes on the last day of the quarter.

This year, Winder put together a video as a surprise for the students.  He used a green screen, Southbury teachers, Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae), and his creativeness to make a video for the kids!  See the video below.
