Baxter Elementary students and staff JAM out


There’s nothing like a good song on the radio to get a person moving. For Connie Lyscio’s fourth grade phy-ed class and the students and staff at Baxter Elementary on Thursday morning, that song was Carly Rae Jepson’s “Call Me Maybe.”

Lyscio invited the school of Baxter, as well as all schools in the Brainerd district, to join in on J.A.M., the first national movement to get everyone moving.
