To Be a Drum

Submitted by tara.pina on Wed, 04/21/2021 - 07:50

Students in Ms. Denis's class read a book about drums, titled "To Be a Drum" by Evelyn Coleman. The book describes the history of the people of Africa and how when they were enslaved they were also were robbed of their drums.  For the people to still feel a connection with the earth and each other through drumming, they used their feet, hands, voices, hearts, and also tried to listen to the rhythms of Mother Earth to help them through difficult times. Ms. Denis invited her friend, Mike Mylroie, who holds drum circles and ceremonies, to share a little bit about the purpose of drums from cultures around the world and to drum together.

Submitted by tara.pina on Wed, 04/21/2021 - 07:45
Nebo is partnering with Tabitha’s Way for a new event called Read & Feed.

The purpose of this event is to encourage children to continue to read during the summer and to educate families facing food insecurity regarding food resources available to them and their children while they are not attending school. Our goal is to gather 10,000 gently used books that children can take home with them and keep to read during the summer.

During the month of April, we are encouraging families to donate gently used books that they no longer need and drop them off at the Tabitha’s Donation Bins at the following schools:

Submitted by tara.pina on Thu, 03/25/2021 - 06:56

Each year 9th graders at SJHS have the opportunity to present a TED talk in their English Classes. In her talk, Julia Hill presented on how music affects our mental health. She explains “I thought about one of my favorite things to present about.” People are nervous before they present. Julia explains it as, “I got more and more nervous every step that I took towards the front of the class.” During Julia’s TED Talk everyone was engaged. Delia Thompson says that her favorite part of Julia’s TED Talk is, “When Julia used memes that were related to all of us.” Once Julia was done she was so proud that she did it.
