8th Grade Taiko Drumming

Many of you may have found yourself walking to the beat of drumming, on the first few days of school. It was not your imagination! It was the 8th grade, being led by Uriko Sensei in a special lesson of Taiko Drumming.  The students played rhythmically and in unison during a Taiko Concert for the 8th grade parents.  We all enjoyed it a lot. Thank you Uriko Sensei!
