     Circus showcases WHS student poetry, prose, and art.  In an effort to raise funds to continue printing a free copy for every student at Wheeling, to print more art pages in color, and possibly even to create a CD of original student music and spoken-word, Circus is working together with Barnes & Noble booksellers to sponsor this event.

     Circus staff is also pleased to work with the Wheeling High School social workers to gather wish lists from less fortunate kids within the Wheeling area.  Shoppers may use this list to donate items to this holiday drive.

     To encourage the community to attend the event, Circus students are hosting events for a variety of ages, including story time and arts and crafts.  An agenda of these events and times will also be available on the WHS home page.

     For more information, contact Laura Wagner, Circus co-sponsor and English teacher at <laura.wagner@d214.org> or (847) 718-7066.
