Teaching the importance of a firm handshake.

Video of the morning ritual shows one student, Asher Bates, greeting his classmates at the door to start the day. Bates stands there proudly leading the routine his teacher put in place at the start of the school year.

Asher and his classmates make eye-to-eye contact, shake hands and smile at each other. Some even lean in for a quick hug.
