Many schools are starting to reopen their doors for students to begin in-person learning and even though that can be stressful and scary, one elementary school in Florida wants to welcome their students back with open arms (figuratively, obviously no hugs during COVID-19) and help ease the transition.

After seven months of virtual teaching, the staff at Florida’s St. Agatha Catholic School put together an awesome music video to show the kids how excited they are to have them back! 

The teachers decided on the joyful and upbeat song "I Want You Back," by the Jackson 5 and hilariously changed all the lyrics to be more COVID-19 friendly. Instead of singing, "Oh baby, give me one more chance (To show you that I love you)," the staff lip syncs to, "Oh students time to grab your masks (And your sanitizer)." It will definitely put a smile on your face! 

The teachers get an A+ for creativity and their dance moves!
