HAMILTON, NJ -- The teachers and staff at Nottingham High School sent their well wishes and "positive vibes" to students in the "Northstar Nation" last week as students continue the school year distance learning at home. The three-minute video set to Pitbull's "Rise Up" features teachers and staff at Hamilton Township's Nottingham High School.  

Nottingham High School Principal Frank Ragazzo told TAPinto Hamilton/Robbinsville that the video was something the staff "felt strong about doing" since they miss the students and "really miss being in school together in the 'normal' way."

"We wanted to make sure our students knew we are always thinking of them and truly understand that the situation we are in is extremely difficult for all of us," said Ragazzo. "The underlying message of the video to our students is to say that together we will get through this and Rise Up, as Pitbull's lyrics state in the song used in the video."
