Drumming Up a Literary Celebration

Drumming Up a Literary Celebration

In celebration of its Parents as Reading Partners activities from Jan. 23 to Feb. 3, Tackan Elementary held a cultural assembly program.

The program tied into the PARP theme of Tackan’s Reading Road Trip: Traveling Around the World. In teaching about the many regions of Japan, Ryu Shu Taiko presented a multicultural concert on the Taiko drums for the students. The interactive concert taught about Japanese culture while incorporating drums. The students even had a chance to take to the stage to learn a song on the drums.
