Having Fun at the Circus

Students, teachers, friends and family were recently welcomed to Cherokee Street Elementary School to enjoy the 2017 edition of the school’s annual Cirque du Jour circus performance. Cherokee’s fifth-grade students worked with circus trainers Erin and Ray in their physical education classes to learn special ‘circus’ skills to entertain their fans.

Students learned the skills necessary to work as clowns, stilt walkers, jugglers, and masters of the Chinese Yo-Yo. The circus program is designed to motivate students to participate more fully in physical education and cultural arts activities.
