If you were in the building this morning, you might have heard some pretty impressive drums! First grade students have been learning about Japan and Japanese culture and were treated to a performance of Japanese drumming by Mr. and Mrs. Horio! Thank you to everyone who helped put on this special performance, the students had a wonderful time learning more about Japanese culture! #WhyNysmith #LearningIsFun ... See MoreSee Less
