KNOXVILLE (WATE) – Staff at one East Tennessee school are lifting spirits during testing.
Lonsdale Elementary staff created a music video to cheer up students during Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program testing week.

Principal Wendy Hansard spits out a rap throughout the video, “We are getting turnt’ for this test, turn up, turn up.”
