Vogel Elem. teachers perform ISTEP version of 'Timber' to prepare for test

Posted: Updated:
EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

ISTEP testing begins next week for many Indiana students and teachers at Vogel Elementary School are getting their students pumped up and ready to go.

"Vogel ISTEP-ers" performed and danced along to their own ISTEP version of the hit song, 'Timber' by Pit Bull ft. Ke$ha.

Principal Audra Offutt said teachers and students have worked really hard to prepare for the test.

Offutt says Vogel fifth-graders scored 92% in the math portion of the test.

Another grade level is predicted to score 5% higher than last year.

"As adults and the kids, everybody gets a little bit anxious that week so our message today was just a little bit to keep it light and keep it fun," said Offutt. "Still send a message to them and just let them know that we believe in them and we have all the confidence that they're ready to come in Monday and take the test and do awesome on it."

Vogel students will tackle the applied skills portion of ISTEP Monday through Wednesday.

They will tackle the multiple choice section on computers in April.
