Sixth grade is a circus!

A student rides a tricycle with a clown nose.

Eagle Point Elementary School took a trip to the circus – without even leaving the building!

Sixth-graders have been training with Circus Theatricks for a month and Dec. 20 was the big show!

The program was made possible thanks to a CDPHP grant through Albany Fund For Education and aimed to teach the athleticism and artistry that goes into the ‘Big Top’ while instilling mental toughness and the importance of accomplishing a goal. The performance also received a lot of laughs and claps from the students and staff in the audience!
