"Shake Away Your Fears" event in Pink Hill preps kids for testing time

KINSTON, N.C. -

It's that time of year again – testing time.

It's only natural for your child to get a little nervous about performing well, so teachers at one school in the East decided to do something about it.

Pink Hill Elementary School held it's first ever "Shake Away Your Fears" event on Friday. Teachers say the all-out-dance-off in the school gym was a time for kids to let loose, have fun and shake away all their nerves before taking their end-of-grade tests.

"Before you take the test, you feel all stressed out and it's nerve-racking because this test counts for most of your grade and you just get all scared and shaky," 5th grader Avery Harper says. "And then whenever you do the dance, it makes your shakes go away because you're letting them all out."

During the dance, teachers also encouraged kids to sign a pledge agreeing to try their best on their end-of-grade tests.
