Shrewsbury -  Students at the Walter J. Paton Elementary School, along with their families, got their groove on at Family Dance Night, Friday, Sept. 21 at the school.

Last year the Shrewsbury Public Schools were awarded a federal physical education grant  to help engage students and families in fun activities that promote fitness. Nicole Kelley and her students from the Rhythm Dance Company in Westborough demonstrated dance moves to the families at the event.

  1. Looks really fun and healthy too…I love that kids are exposed to more physical activities. With the advent of gadgets and technology handing everything to us much easier, more and more kids grow up less active and less healthy. With more programs and activities like this, we can welcome the positive effects of technology with a healthier disposition.
