My fifth graders do not have gym. They do not have art, music, dance or any other culture related class. In addition to their regular studies, they are nervously preparing for rigorous academic testing as they simultaneously face the challenges of living in a high needs area where they face many stresses way before they should have to. They need a way to regularly soothe their lives and find a way to maintain a calm within the storm. They need a way to focus their energies and create. Please help us to create a drumming circle to incorporate rhythm, dance, calmness, ritual, and culture into our classroom. With your gift, my students will be able to use their pent up energies for something as a UNIT. They will be able to relax with one another while learning about the traditions of different cultures, and the sounds used to express joy, fear, anger, hope, and life. My students are desperate to express themselves in a constructive manner, and with your donation, we will be able to join as one to learn, to play, and to relax.
