Today all students experienced the vibratory sensation of the Grass Valley Taiko drum group at school.  This group was very dynamic and entertaining.  Your student can tell you about "rhythm" and "chorus" and the power of music to transform the mundane day into one of joy.  This assembly was paid for by the money you contributed to Jog-A-Thon this year.  Join us as a family tomorrow for "Family Science Night."
