The National Circus Project recently made a weeklong stop at Tackan Elementary School. Two professional circus artist-instructors held introductory workshops for the fourth grade class. The instructors kicked off the week by showing off their skills during an assembly for the whole grade level. Each day during the week, the students learned age-appropriate circus skills during their physical education classes, such as juggling, plate spinning, devil sticks and diablo manipulation. The students showcased their new skills at the conclusion of the week with a performance.

Author Visit

He also taught them how to write their own stories. He writes from the heart and provides rich sensory details that allow readers to feel as if they themselves are there.
