DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Dayton Public Schools organized a surprise, public ‘clap-in’ at Westwood Elementary Schools to motivate and encourage students to do well in school.

DPS staff and community members lined the walkway Monday morning outside the school to clap, high-five, and encourage students as they walked into school.

The clap-in is part of DPS’ Be Present for a Better Future campaign, which aims to encourage students to attend school every day.
