Wow! What a day! With the help of my husband, mom, MIL, dad, stepmom, and parent/teacher volunteers, my business sponsored and hosted an all-day circus for over 400 people (students who had no discipline in past month, parents, and teachers)! The smiles that filled the room made all the hard work well worth it!
The clown (my mom) started each of the 7 50-minute sessions by saying "No ticket required, only good behavior! Step right up the fun awaits, step right through these circus gates!"
What People Ate
Because the sessions started before lunch, we decided to not offer any snacks. Yea, bummer!
The entire day was awesome! My personal favorite time was the 50 minutes when my son's pre-k group was there (he's the cute blonde wearing the red lion shirt).
Most Touching Moment
We received lots of appreciation, but one person stood out. He was an older gentleman (probably a grandparent or great grandparent) who approached me after the session. He told me how heart-warming it was to see nothing but smiles from so many kids. He thanked me for taking stress away from the kids even if just for a few minutes. It was so rewarding to hear his genuine appreciation.
