Circus Paw Paw

Our school organized a circus and performed our non-death defying feats on the evening of March 25th, called Circus Paw Paw, sponsored by Title I.  We had over 315 attendees.  This event was based on the book You See A Circus, I See… By Mike Downs. 

We transformed the cafeteria and main corridors into a one-ring circus.  Faculty and staff members portrayed the characters and Pearson Alexandratos, a staff member’s son, played the main character in the story.  We also included a bearded lady, ferocious animals, games, and an Illusionist.  Hot dogs and popcorn were provided and each family received a copy of the book to take home.
