Our School Drum: Building Community and Relationships

Jenny Pert, Melissa Ewanchuck, Michael Boos

From the principal’s window the other day, we could see three boys in the kindergarten playground area who had taken a box and tipped it upside down on the ground. They each had a stick in one hand and were drumming on the box. Their faces bore an expression of real pride as they managed to keep the beat together. The heartbeat of the Mother Earth and the pride among our students are alive and well at Sioux Mountain Public School.
