March, 2017


Dear Students, Parents, and Staff of Sonoraville Elementary,


Our character word for March is courage. The 2016-17 Georgia Children’s Picture Book Award Finalists, Drum Dream Girl by Margarita Engle and illustrated by Rafael Lopez has the subtitle, “How One Girl’s Courage Changed Music” is a wonderful illustration of the characteristic, courage.


Based on a true story of a young girl in Cuba, the story tells of the girl’s passion, talent and ambition to become a drummer at a time when only boys were taught and allowed to drum. Her tenacity in following her dreams led her to make a change for all girls in the world of music.


Standing up for yourself in a positive way and having the courage to believe in your actions and the actions of others is something we can all admire and hope to achieve. This book is a great example of courageous stands.
