A little "Uptown Funk" to uplift students taking new Georgia Milestones test

Here's a fun video from Cohutta Elementary School in Whitfield County to energize students for their first experience taking the new Georgia Milestones test.

The upbeat parody borrows from Mark Ronson's "Uptown Funk."

The school has produced  other charming videos  including an ode last year to the CRCT, "Here We Go."

The talented Pied Piper in the video leading students is music teacher Lauren Buckner.
