SHOREWOOD - Inside the Lake Bluff Elementary School, Packers fever didn't keep any students home Friday.

"We start them off really young," said teacher Mike Roberts.

It may be the only time Roberts was able to come to work wearing what he wore to bed. It was part of Packers Day at the school.

"Everyone should wear Packers pajamas anyway, if you don't, I don't know how you sleep well at night," said Roberts to one of his students.

Roberts described his outfit.

"I have my Packers pajamas. And my Packers shirt. And it's too hot here, but I had a Packers fleece. And then my ice fishing hat, which is always important this time of year."

Mr. Roberts wasn't the only Packer-backer. Pretty much everyone at the school wore green and gold for this Packers day...except the principal.

"Well, I was a little absent minded today. I know the kids have been super excited for Packers day," said Kirk Juffer.

Super excited is an understatement for 9-year old Nicholas Glaser. He can't wait for the game.

"I think it's going to be a close game, but the Packers are going to win," he said.

A winning prediction on a day we all feel a bit younger thanks to the green and gold.

"It's been a high energy day," said Juffer.
