Gettin' Groovy at the Seventieth Lower School Circus

By BB&N May 19, 2023

       This year’s Lower School Circus was a nifty time to celebrate the 70th annual carnival by throwing it back to the 1970s. From peace signs and tie-dye to ABBA and Elton John, the theme provided a groovy backdrop for the assortment of festival activities for all ages.

       Like a classic fairground, the campus boasted bounce castles, a dunk tank, an obstacle course, and games for students to show off their skills honed by Coach Bourget ’96 and Coach Kingman in their physical education classes. After working up an appetite with all those games, there was plenty of cotton candy, popcorn, hot dogs, and hamburgers, with some food provided by BB&N’s amazing dining services.

      The sunny afternoon also featured performances from students including Taekwon-do club, piano, guitar, and even a student rap about his first year at BB&N! To top off a radical day, the Cambridge Fire Department brought a truck to teach kids about the vehicle and being a firefighter. 

      Thank you to everyone involved who worked so hard to make this day a success, especially all of the wonderful parent volunteers, without whom the event would not have been possible.
