Circus Day at School Project Outline
1. Leading up to the show
The school assigns an advance person to coordinate the recruitment of volunteers and to supply us with student lists, volunteers and faculty lists, school maps, lunch schedules and other information.
We have some great tools available on line to help the advance person. At the click of a button you can create letters to send home with the students, posters to hang up in the school and a press release to publicize the event.
go directly to the advance person tools.
There are 22 adult volunteers needed to run every circuit.
Each circuit can accomodate 100 - 120 students.
We split the students up into multi-age groups and ask the school to suggest any changes to the groups that may help make things run as smoothly as possible. Volunteers can be entered directly into our online database.
The whole school typically prepares for the project weeks in advance by incorporating a circus theme in reading, history, social studies etc., and by decorating the school with circus artwork.
