When you think of 'Back to School' time, it may be a drag to get the kids pumped to start off the school year.

But teachers at Rodgers Forge Elementary had a great idea to get the party started! Well, to get the school year started with a positive and motivating behavior movement for their school. 

In the viral video, six teachers dressed in red, orange, purple, blue, green, and yellow colored costumes representing the school's new Peacemaker Houses initiative or "House System" created by Ron Clark, danced to Flo Rida's song My House.

The initiative originated in an effort to carry out their schoolwide campaign that pushed for students to feel accepted in school and their community. This new "House System" allows every student and every staff member to be sorted out into one of the six 'houses' or colors. 

And the cool part of it all, they even have a Harry Potter style sorting ceremony into their respective houses.

"Overall it is our hope that this program helps our students work together, even more, to support each other in making good choices to become kind and respectful citizens," said Katie Schmidt, S.T.A.T. Teacher at Rodgers Forge Elementary. 

It's pretty clear that the students at Rodgers Forge will be dancing their way back to school, thanks to their cool school administrators.
