       Emails about the show...
      What a show! I am proud of all the Butler Elementary School circus students and what all of you accomplished in the last 2 weeks. Wow!

      A couple of emails have been shared with me that I thought you might like to read. I guess I am not the only person who is impressed with you what you accomplished.

      Congratulations on a job well done!


      Dear Colleagues

      I just returned from Butler Elementary in Bedfoird where our Parkview students attended the Circus of the Kids show

      What an incredible achievement for the students and the school. The Circus of the Kids organization has, over only several weeks, tranformed Butler students into professional Circus performers.

      When I arrived, I did not know what to expect and was completely blown away by the show. It was big league in every way. A real circus!

      The shows continues through the weekend with a Friday evening performance at 7pm and 2 performances (2pm and 7pm) on Staurday and Sunday.

      Congratulations to Renalee and the Butler staff and community for a truly exceptional school project. In Circus parlance: you have really raised the Bar!

      Hope you can get to see it!


      I have spent my whole teaching career trying to do big things that can be life changing for my students.

      What you have created for your students is a memory that will live in their minds forever... Long after they have forgotten what we have taught them in the classroom, they will remember how this circus made them feel.

      Garry Phillips, my favourite guru says that the number one poverty in a child\'s life is the abscence of enriching life experiences. Today, you enriched a whole community.
