John Pearl Elementary School students recently completed a circus performance physical education unit with The National Circus Project. Each of the district’s elementary schools has also completed the unit.
Ring masters Greg Milstein and Mary Kelly Rayel worked with the students during the course of a week, teaching them special circus skills such as juggling, spinning plates, how to be a clown, walking on stilts and the tightwire and the juggling of devil sticks.
Physical education teacher Nick Sturz explained that the unit hones the students’ balance and coordination and presents novel physical challenges and attempts at perseverance. The unit also teaches the students to focus on the task at hand.
“The program also gives students who are not necessarily athletes a chance to shine here,” Mr. Sturz said.
The circus unit culminated at the end of the week with a performance for parents and faculty.
