M.E. Project September 14, 2012: Free to Be Me Drum Circle

Your Emerson PTA presents the M.E. Project. 
M.E. stands for Mind Exercise. The M.E. Project is designed to promote music, art, dance, science and fitness as part of a well rounded educational experience at Emerson! 

Free events are held monthly with different themes. Student participants receive a "passport" and collect Mine Exercise stickers and signatures as they attend each event. Once they have accrued 5 stickers (and attended 5 different events) they will have an opportunity to win a new bicycle at the end of the year!

Our first event was a drum circle. Students experienced music, rhythm, movement, and were encouraged to BE FREE! What a success as we had almost 250 participants even though the day was sweltering hot, beating on drums in the shade proved to be an awesome experience and sight on a Friday afternoon.

Various craft projects are also made available at each M.E. Project!

 Future M.E. Project events will be held on the 2nd Friday of each month.
