Students take part in Nae Nae challenge

Middle school students in Baychester broke out their dance moves to the beat of a summer hit for a good cause.



Casa Middle School students danced to the viral hit "Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)" by Silento to celebrate public education.



The Nae Nae challenge is a social media campaign to shine a light on the staff, the learning and most importantly students.



Students even challenged Rep. Andy King, who accepted.



Casa Middle School's Principal Jamaal Bowman challenged some other schools to participate and raise awareness of public school successes in the city. They are using the hashtag #iampubliced.
