Luis Rijos, husband of teacher Carmen Rijos, volunteered to demonstrate to the 5th graders different types of Latin music on the conga drums for Hispanic Heritage month. 

Veteran's Day Celebration

Students and staff at Driggs School put on a great celebration today honoring Veterans.  They were lucky enough to meet some veterans and hear their stories.  They also made poppies in art class to give to the veterans and learned patriotic songs to sing during music class.  The chorus performed songs and the Forever Waves Squad showed the school and Veterans how to fold the flag and recited poems about the flag.  The Boy Scouts also were honored at this event.  We even had Mrs. Marold, a retired Driggs principal to come back to Driggs to celebrate with us.  It as a great event!  Thanks again to all that participated.
