Circus Comes to Town

Students performed acrobatics and circus arts for family and friends during the assembly before winter break on Friday, February 17, 2012. The performances included human being and animal-themed acts–from circus performers to insects to escaping leopards. The acts incorporated movements they learned in gymnastics class, which helps the students develop coordination.
