A Trip to the Circus

A Trip to the Circus photo

Students, teachers, friends and family were recently welcomed to John Pearl Elementary School’s ‘O-Town Circus’ assembly, as the fifth-grade students were able showcase the “circus skills” recently acquired in their physical education classes.

Throughout the course of the week, students learned the skills necessary to work as clowns, jugglers, plate spinners, stilt walkers and the Diabolo stick. The circus program is designed to motivate students to participate more fully in physical education and cultural arts activities. 

The district would like to thank the O-Town Circus coaches, the school’s fifth-grade teachers, Parent-Teacher Association and John Pearl Elementary School Physical Education Teacher Nick Sturtz for their support and cooperation throughout.

As part of “The Great Kindness Challenge,” staff and students from John Pearl Elementary School recently collected a number of items for the Ronald McDonald House in an effort to assist those families in need. Due to their benevolent contributions, the school was to fill a number of boxes to the brim with items such as bathroom essentials, kitchen utensils and general household items.
