here is the letter from Mrs. Gholston-Thompson:

Dear Students,

My soul was moved and heart warmed to hear the soulful and engaging sounds from Ghanaian and Brazilian cultures. By now, most of you have probably learned that music was a form of communication in most African and Latin American countries. Similarly, it was used as a tool for gathering family, friends, and even foes. I am so glad to know that you have embraced diverse cultures which represent only a fraction of our students’ roots. You were absolutely A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! I am still trying to figure out how Mr. Flygt got everyone to clap, sing, rock and drum on beat for seven unique selections. Thank you for your hard work and dedication in continuing our school’s tradition of excellence in the Music Department.


Mrs. Gholston-Thompson
