Rock Your School Day at Kentuck
Rock Your School Day
Kentuck Elementary School participated in the second nnual Rock Your School event on 9-19-19, hosted by Get Your Teach On. Get Your Teach On, the educational movement energizing the K-8 teaching community, is hosting the second annual Rock Your School Event on 9-19-19.

Educators across the country are invited to participate by creating an outside-the-box educational experience designed to engage their students and bring learning to life in their classrooms. Participants in “Rock Your School” can try something new in their curriculum, or challenge themselves and their students in new ways knowing they are not alone, they are joining a community of teachers world-wide who are all challenging themselves to find new ways to engage their students. Kentuck Elementary School participated by hosting “Science Rocks at Kentuck Elementary School."

Students across grade levels participated in multiple science experiments throughout the day and got a hands on experience with science in the classroom. In 2018, thousands of educators from over 1,000 schools participated in Rock Your School. GYTO received entries from schools in all 50 states, plus entries from Canada, Australia, the Cayman Islands, Honduras, Brazil, Norway and the UAE. Artists Paul Stanley and Nick Lachey supported Rock Your School, hosted in 2018 at Laurence School in Los Angeles, California. In fact, 98 Degrees have filmed a video to help spread the word.

Co-Founder of Get Your Teach On, Hope King, says, “Our mission is to engage as many teachers as possible, who in turn will engage and inspire literally millions of students. It all starts with us. If educators feel inspired, we can be the difference in a child’s life. We can help instill the joy of life-long learning in our students.” Get Your Teach On (GYTO) specializes in professional development (and encouragement) for educators and administrators in the form of conferences, workshops and events. Get Your Teach On conferences are known for their passionate celebration of teachers and their ability to inspire life-long learners. GYTO encourages rigorous academics infused with creativity to engage students’ minds and imaginations.

Founded in 2016, GYTO now hosts one annual National Conference, four Regional Conferences, a Leadership Conference (Get Your Lead On), an intensive workshop for K-1st grade teachers (GYTO University), and a rigorous subject-specific workshop for 2nd-5th grade teachers (GYTO Next Level) each year. In 2020, over 11,000 teachers will experience a GYTO professional development conference.
