Jefferson Elementary school 3rd grade students play tubanos, djembe, and congas during a Black History Month event. District band teacher Amy Hettenhausen is introducing the drums to several schools this week. The drum circle gives the students an opportunity to try out the drums and learn basic African rhythms.
