Teachers at Johnston Hopkins Elementary School in New Iberia celebrated the last bell of the school year in style. The staff created a catchy music video based off R&B and Hip-hop singer Drake’s song "Hotline Bling."

In the video teachers and staff dance in the halls of the elementary school while singing reinvented lyrics to the 2016 hit. "You used to call me by my last name," sing a few of the teachers as they swagger towards the camera finishing the verse with, "especially when you need my help." 

Mimicking the dance moves from the now famous "Hotline Bling" music video the teachers and staff celebrate the end of the school year repeating "I know when that school bell rings, that can only mean one thing."

Director of the video and 6th-grade teacher at Johnston Hopkins Elementary, Christine Bayard says that teachers from pre-k to 6th grade teamed up with other faculty and staff to create the video.  Bayard says even the principal and assistant principal joined in on the fun.
