Balancing Fun and Learning


When the circus comes to town, Locust Valley Elementary School students join in the fun! Thanks to the Locust Valley Parents’ Council, students enhanced physical and mental skills such as balancing, spinning objects, coordination and teamwork.

Fourth-graders perfected their skills during a weeklong circus workshop that culminated with a performance for their families. Students in kindergarten through fifth grade also had the opportunity to learn some circus tricks during their physical education classes. 

The program is run by the National Circus Project, an arts-in-education program, physical education program and cultural program all rolled into one. You can see some of the fun in the video below.
