The Circus Comes to Town

The National Circus Project came to Accompsett Elementary School during the week of Nov. 13 to work with the fourth-grade students.

Sponsored by the school’s PTA, the National Circus Project held weeklong workshops with the students to teach them the skills to perform in the circus. The program teaches patience, teamwork, confidence, self-discipline and good practice habits all while having fun. On Nov. 17, Accompsett’s fourth-graders were ready to showcase their skills for their families and invited guests.

Acrobats, stilt walkers, plate spinners, jugglers and more showed off their balancing skills with a variety of objects. Clowns kept the audience entertained throughout the circus, while other students showcased their talent using the diabolo and devil sticks.
