FARGO — On Wednesday, students at Carl Ben Eielson Middle School were movin' and groovin' and getting motivated with the School Bell Rocks program.

School Bell Rocks is an interactive, educational, and entertaining in-school program with fitness, music and motivational speakers.

On Wednesday, Dec. 7, students from sixth, seventh and eighth grade were participating hands on.

The founder of the program is Fargo native Patrick Kasper, who started School Bell Rocks because of his own experiences as a child.

"When I was a kid I was really shy and I really didn't participate in anything until I learned about fitness and aerobics and movin' and groovin' so then that got me excited," he said.

Kasper's goal of the program is to break kids out of their comfort zone and let loose.

"(It) doesn't matter about what you look like or what you are feeling that day. We want to change your mindset so you come in movin' and groovin' get some positive motion going and the biggest thing is share that positive motion with others," he said.

School Bell Rocks travels across the country and, thanks to sponsors, is free for any school.
