Fifth graders, including, from left, Mallory Henman, Anthony Vilardo and Macy Pritchard, performed on the Japanese taiko drums at Westerville Central High School for International Night March 12. Drummers were students from Emerson World Cultures Magnet School. The evening included a school-wide musical performance, a student art show and a focus on service learning. The ongoing service learning project, Children’s Safe Drinking Water, was featured. The second grade hosted a bake sale, the proceeds of which were donated to a family whose child is battling cancer.
