We Got the Beat! Yeah! We Got the Beat!





This week in the JCHS Library was a real treat as the JCHS Library and Special Education classes collaborated with Mr. Stuart Tankesley, Assistant Band Director and Choir Director at James Clemens High School, to bring the book, “Drum Dream Girl: How One Girl's Courage Changed Music” to life.


Mr. Tankesley arranged for percussionist and newly crowned Homecoming Queen, Elisia Alampi, brought an array of percussion instruments for student to learn about and have an opportunity to experiment with the different sounds each instrument makes.


Each Thursday JCHS Special Education Self Contained classes come to the JCHS Library for story time and time of their own in the JCHS MakerSpace. This week students were welcomed with the sounds of Millo Castro Zaldarriaga, for whom the book was inspired.

We read the book and then Elisia demonstrated the instruments she brought.  We then had students take turn creating beats to be played.  

This collaboration has been one of my favorites so far this school year!
