On Thursday, students at shone under the big top with members from the National Circus Project teaching them how to juggle and complete various circus skills.
Grades K-6 attended an exciting mini-circus assembly, led by Circus Project Executive Director Greg Milstein, which has been designed to help motivate students to participate more fully in physical education and cultural arts activities.
“This program inspires kids to try physical feats requiring coordination, patience,and persistence," PTA president Jane Kiernan said. "Because these circus skills are new to all of the students, athletes and non-athletes alike, kids are excited to try them out and they can progress attheir own rate."
The event was sponsored by the Oradell PTA’s Student Programming Committee, led by parents Laura Hartnett and Melissa Vidaic, following a request of Phys. Ed. teacher Ms. Eileen Choka.
According to the National Circus Project, the skils taught during a workshop generate interest and enthusiasm while encouraging self-confidence, motivation and self-discipline.
