OAK FOREST ELEMENTARY TURNS INTO A CIRCUS
On Monday, February 13, 2017, Oak Forest Elementary students turned their school into a circus that promoted student success. Students, teachers, and staff all experienced an educational and motivational program that resonated the following message: “If you think you can, you can!”. During the program, juggling was used as the medium for giving students the opportunity to feel success. Students learned and worked to improve hand-eye coordination, persistence, focus, gross motor skills, tracking, concentration, and self-confidence. Students also practiced goal setting and learned new vocabulary.
