Staff at Ridge Middle School in Mentor make music video to ease stress of OAA state tests

MENTOR, Ohio - Students across Ohio are in testing mode, and staff at a school in Mentor are trying to ease the stress that comes with test taking.

Ridge Middle School staff created a music video posted on YouTube Wednesday.

It starts off with this text:
"Happy OAA Day #2. We all know you've been working very hard and putting forth your best effort. The end is almost here, but not quite yet! Rather than tell you to ‘hold on' for another day… we'd rather sing it to you!"

The video is to the song "Hold On" by Wilson Phillips. Besides many staff members, both of the school's principals are featured in the video.
