Students at Joseph Teres School celebrated the start of Music Month on Monday, May 2, which also happened to be Music Monday. They took part in a schoolwide assembly with Dr. Ben Reimer, a contemporary drumkit specialist.
One school cohort took part live with Dr. Reimer and other students joined the assembly remotely from their classrooms using Microsoft Teams. Students sang, drummed, and danced along with Dr. Reimer in celebration of music in our schools.
Following the schoolwide assembly, the Grade 5 students participated in a drumming workshop with Dr. Reimer, as well.
Joseph Teres is celebrating Music Month by focusing each day on a different Manitoba musician. Students participate in schoolwide listening time over the PA system and learn about a homegrown Manitoba musician, then journal their responses to the music.
