Principal's drum solo fires up students for reading

Sending the crowd to their feet, Milaca Elementary Principal Steve Voshell performed a wicked 10-minute drum solo during the “Read to the Beat” pep fest to kick off the school’s reading program. Students and staff responded to the epic performance with cheers, hollers and applause. Ringo Starr, eat your heart out.

Students were also treated to a “flash mob” dance rendition from teachers and staff to the tune of “We Got the Beat” as part of the reading celebrations. The sixth-grade drumline also provided thumping-good entertainment.
