Last Day of School Drums Alive Activity

Posted: Updated:

The last week of school in Minot brought out the fun in some of the students and teachers.

At Jim Hill, they combined sprinklers, drums, and pool toys for a unique celebration.

Photojournalist Gaylen Ness captured the event.

(Leah Wheeling, Jim Hill Physical Education Teacher) "This is physical education class today, yes! We were outside and we needed a water activity and we're drumming and doing a big cardio workout, along with all the sprinklers and the water and it's just a blast!"

(Andee Hanson, Jim Hill 6th Grade) "It was really creative. I think they did something different since it's the end of the school year. It's just different."

(Leah Wheeling, Jim Hill Physical Education Teacher) "Drums Alive is actually a national thing and they do that as an exercise movement with stability balls. However we don't have that in the pool or drumsticks, so we use the swim noodles and the chairs and sprinklers. It's a take of our own."

(Brandon Huey, Jim Hill 6th Grade) "It was working out, yeah."

(Andee Hanson, Jim Hill 6th Grade) (Did you get a good workout?) "I think so, not really though." (Worked out your smile more than anything?) "Yeah!"

(Brandon Huey, Jim Hill 6th Grade) "Just dancing and hanging out with everyone."

(Leah Wheeling, Jim Hill Physical Education Teacher) "It's June! They're wild! It's time to have fun. It's time to do a summer activity and pull it right into the classroom. All our activities are designed to be that way, to be engaging, to get them to move, to get them to move all summer long. All these kids can take their noodles and play on their chairs all summer and stay active."
