The circus came to Polk Street School on Feb. 16, as the sixth graders performed multiple circus tricks taught to them by their physical education teachers. The students practiced for a few weeks prior to the show, learning skills like walking on stilts, juggling, spinning plates, using Diabolos and more. They performed what they learned in front of their peers and families.

PSS Students Create Greek-Inspired Pottery

Polk Street School sixth graders participated in a “Day in Clay” workshop with artist Cliff Mendelson on Jan. 12. The pottery-making activity coincided with their Greek history unit in Social Studies.

The students learned about Ancient Greek pottery and viewed a few samples brought in by Mendelson. He taught the students techniques on how to build their clay pots and demonstrated design tools. The sixth graders enjoyed creating their own Greek-inspired pottery pieces.

The pottery project will conclude in art class, as the students will paint their pieces once they are fully dried.
