Tampa Bay Lightning coming to ACE – May 18th



We at ACE would like to send a huge thanks to PEF for being awarded the School to School grant.  This grant helped with funding for ACE to purchase drums for our Music department.  We love using the drums in our Holyoake Drumbeat groups.  This leadership class is based on the works of the Australian Holyoake Institute and was developed to combine the benefits of the group drumming process with discussions of life situations. The combination of drumming and discussions help transfer these life lessons from the drums to daily living choices and social interactions.

 Here are some quotes about Holyoake Drumbeat:

 Principal:  “It is an awesome activity to allow students to collaborate and build trust through a positive experience.”

 C.G-“ I liked when we played the game of when one person danced in the middle of the circle as everyone else played the drums.  Then once the drums stopped, that person had to stop dancing.” “Drumming helped me stay calm at home with my mom.”

 I.H-“I liked how we learned how to play drums and work as a group.”  “I would like to do this again.”  “It helped me communicate with others and as a group.”

 J.C-“I get to play drums and it is aspiring.”  “It helped me with my anger and frustration.

Parent & Community Feedback Survey
