The Merrimac Elementary School gymnasium transformed into the “Big Top” in collaboration with the National Circus Project. The National Circus Project is a combination of a physical education and arts-in-education program that teaches students a variety of skills used in the circus arts.

During the course of a week, fifth grade students learned skills from professionals including juggling, plate-spinning, balancing and handling devil sticks. Not only did they work to perfect these skills, they learned patience, confidence and self-discipline throughout the process.

At the end of the week, the fifth graders put on culminating show for their teachers, peers and families. Students were excited to showcase their new tricks and their peers were thrilled to cheer them on.

Students at Waverly Avenue Elementary School stepped inside the world of science during an assembly called, “Spin, Pop, Boom,” presented by Mad Science. Students learned all about chemistry and reactions through exciting experiments and demonstrations.

Student volunteers stepped up to the lab table in front of the audience to learn about acids, bases and chemical reactions through hands-on activities. They watched Styrofoam cups melt in their hands, lids pop off of plastic cannisters thanks to an Alka-Seltzer reaction and even created “elephant toothpaste” by mixing hydrogen peroxide and soap.
