South Florida school motivates students through music video

Staff remade Pitbull's 'Timber' video


MIAMI – Students at Pinecrest Academy South Charter School in Miami have a new tool to help them get motivated and study for exams.

The teachers, administrators, and staff remade the hit song "Timber" by rapper Pitbull in order to encourage students to do their best on the SAT and FCAT Assessments. They titled their video 'FCAT is Going Down' and you can check out the video here.

The video features a teacher dressed up as Pitbull, while staff and other administrators perform choreographed dance numbers.

SAT testing for kindergarten through second-grade students takes place next week, while FCAT testing for third through fifth-grade classes begins on April 14.
