RICHMOND, Va. -- Teachers and administrators at John Marshall High School are offering up some words of encouragement for students ahead of the new school year.
In a new back to school video, school faculty rap to a remix of the popular song "Tap in" by Saweetie.
With virtual learning quickly approaching, the Richmond educators dropped some motivational bars, reminding the students of the importance of the challenge ahead.
"Forget COVID, lets work here tap in, tap, tap, tap in. JM that's the fam lets tap in, tap, tap, tap in. Back in September, year to remember. Ima show you how to solve problems like a winner. Count on decimals, work on your paper, you better learn keystrokes I need you to remember," rapped Math Department Chair Latonia Kelly.
School Principal Monica Murray even made an appearance, showing her lyrical prowess and moves in the second verse of the song.
"Old Brook Road, there's a story to be told. Never let your zip code determine where you go. Our teachers can create, do you have what it takes? 2021 take your foot off the brakes. Telling you I love you because I want you to excel. If you need me. Just send me an email. All your teachers are waiting on you as well. Don't be late to class, or I promise they will tell," rapped Murray.
