BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Bills fever is spreading everywhere, fast.

“Actually today was a school wide Buffalo Bills day, so our whole schools is in Buffalo Bills attire,” first grade teacher at the Buffalo Academy of Science Kellie Lowe said.

School districts from all over Western New York are celebrating the hometown team.

“I wanted to come up with a school wide project where teachers and kids could come together, virtually obviously. So we came up with a virtual school spirit Bills Mafia flash mob,” sixth grade teacher at North Tonawanda Intermediate Kristie Keidel said.

Keidel said while this school year has been socially distant this their love for the Buffalo Bills is a uniting force.

“Even though they can't be in person together, they can see each other on the screen, so it makes them smile like that's my friend, that's my teacher,” she said.

In Buffalo, some teachers are using Bills fever to help forward school lessons.

“Like this weeks digraphs are 'sh' so I developed slides of like the players so during our sessions I'm just representing our home team," first grade teacher at the Buffalo Academy of Science Daryan Harris said.

And teachers at Notre Dame Academy said they’re using the Buffalo Bills to teach their students life lessons.

“So with every day tasks we just kind of think about how it relates to the game," second grade teacher at Notre Dame Academy Lindsey Carrion said. "I [say I] know we’re getting excited, but we have to try a little harder if we make a mistake just like they do in the game."

But one thing is true among all three schools. The Buffalo Bills definitely make them wanna shout.
