CRS Awarded STARS Grant from Mass Cultural Council

Charles River School was selected this year to receive a STARS grant from the Mass Cultural Council, which provides these grants to schools to support creative learning residencies of three days or more in the arts, sciences, and humanities. For CRS, this grant will support 4th graders work with Joh Camara, a dancer and drummer from West Africa. Joh is the son of a griot, an African musician and storyteller, who shares his deep-rooted background in West African history, culture, music and dance with students as he works with them. This work is one aspect of the 4th grade's thematic study of Africa and the Yoruba culture.
