Displaying Circus Skills

On March 1, the famous O-Town Circus Troupe presented its spectacular traveling big top show with assistance from the fifth-grade students at Edith L. Slocum Elementary School.

Principal John Delio welcomed circus coaches Erin and Ray, who worked with all of the talented students during the course of the week. During their “training,” the circus stars learned the skills necessary to entertain the attendees, including clown work, juggling plate spinners, stilt walking and the diabolo stick. 

The students enthusiastically participated in the program during the week, and were eager to display their new-found talents during an evening showcase for parents and friends.
