Silent Parties are growing in popularity and create an atmosphere for participants to enjoy music while being able to socialize with others without the presence of loud music. Wireless headphones are worn by all, while a DJ broadcasts music to them.
“The Silent Party went really well,” Deyundraus Boyd, Dean of Upper Elementary at Warrendale said. “The scholars, teachers and staff were all excited and it truly boosted student engagement in preparation for state testing.”
The event took on dual themes, “To Proficiency and Beyond” and “Glowing and Growing.” Many students donned glow sticks and waved glow wands while others formed groups to coordinate their dance steps, their wireless headphones bobbing to the beat.
The event created a buzz to get kids excited and helped them keep focus when the time came to test, Boyd said.
