P.S. 84 is planning an after school circus program based on the book Mirette on High Wire for the 2006-2007 school year. Mirette lives an exciting life filled with mimes, jugglers and the sounds of the circus. P.S. 84 is creating a program that allows students to work with a visiting artist to learn circus skills and perform a mini-circus for the school. The school circus night will include a visiting storyteller, face painting, juggling and mime. I would like to give the 50 children that will be part of the circus club a copy of the book Mirette on High Wire. It is our firm belief at P.S. 84 that literacy and reading enjoyment is built through fun and enjoyable activities.
