Stack Up 2018!

| Comments Off on Stack Up 2018!

Suncrest is participating in the World Sport Stacking Association’s yearly attempt at breaking the Guinness World Records Title for “Most People Sport Stacking at Multiple Locations in One Day” on November 8th!

Sport stacking (also known as cup stacking or speed stacking) is an individual and team sport that involves stacking specialized plastic cups in specific sequences in as little time as possible. Participants of sport stacking stack cups in pre-determined sequences in pyramids of 3, 6, or 10 cups. Players compete against the clock or another player. Stacking builds great hand-eye coordination and skills that are important for playing sports and musical instruments.

African Drumming

| Comments Off on African Drumming

Welcome back everyone! I hope you had a great summer.

Music classes will start up again with some high energy drumming! We will be playing djembes, instruments that originate from West Africa. The name of the djembe comes from the saying “Anke djé, anke bé” which translates to “everyone gather together in peace” and defines the drum’s purpose. It will be a wonderful way to start the year!
