Circus proves learning is fun

I would like to thank McNeil Canyon Elementary school for inviting Razdolna Elementary School to their rehearsal presentation of the culmination of their artist in the school residency. We were greeted by a gregarious clown. Bags of fresh popcorn were given to us to enjoy while we watched the “Greatest Show on Earth.” After the amazing performance, Razdolna students walked the hallways and were overwhelmed by the sights and sounds of the circus themed interactive bulletin boards and decorations. In class the next day, students were encouraged to write about their experience, and what they remembered most about the circus performance. With this inspiration, Razdolna second- through fifth-grade students embarked on a circus learning adventure. Thank you, Debbie Piper, for your encouragement and support throughout this whole learning endeavor.
