On March 20, 2015, Bennett, Chrysler and Pasteur Elementary attended the Shrine Circus as a reward for having the highest attendance on count day.  The Shrine Circus was established in February 1906 as a way of lifting the spirits of Detroiters during the cold winter months and has been a springtime tradition ever since.

The students enjoyed an afternoon of laughing at the clowns, marveling at the death defying high wire and trapeze performances and watching the horses and elephants do amazing tricks. One of the highlights of the show was when three motorcyclists all rode their bikes in a spear at the same time.  The motorcyclists were siblings who were only 12, 16 and 18 years old (shown in picture above).  The students had an amazing time.  Thank you Joseph Productions, Inc. for making this possible for our students and congratulations students on a job well done.
