Circus Night 2018!

On the first day of May, the Villa di Maria community came together for our Annual Circus Night, complete with wonderful activities for the kids (and grown ups), a wonderful show by some of the dynamic performers from Circus Harmony and a delicious dinner from Chipotle. Lots and lots of photos from the fun, below.

While last year’s event (be sure to take a look if you’re a parent – it’s so much fun to see how the children have grown over the past year) took place off campus due to the construction of the elementary building, this year, we were thrilled to be back on our own turf!

The ever-popular Kona Ice truck made an appearance; we’re thinking it’s going to have to be a regular at all of Villa’s school functions!

As always, the balloon artists were top notch. This patient soul even made a narwhal for one of the children!

This year there was even a caricature artist!

Circus Night was also an opportunity for new families (who will be joining the community the following school year) to meet and make new friends, to become familiar with the campus and to blow off some steam! We love that our VdM family is growing.

It’s always a pleasure to see families and friends enjoying each other’s company.

And, of course, the Circus Harmony acts were outstanding!

We lucked out with beautiful weather (yet again) and after everyone enjoyed dinner and games, they gathered round to watch the show. This time, three of Villa’s own brothers got to join the performance and show off a bit for their friends!

We can’t go without saying thank you to the Parent Association Co-Chairs, Kathy Favazza and Tami Presley, who pulled the event together wonderfully, as they have pulled together these events all year long. Thank you also to Samantha Clarke, and all the parent volunteers who helped set up, clean up, supervise, and pitched in through so many ways. We are so lucky to have such a fantastic community!
