LEWISBORO, N.Y. – The Parent Teacher Organization held its annual “Lewisboro Circus” in the Lewisboro Elementary School on Saturday. Arcade games, face painting, stuffed animal building, games with prizes, science fun, bake sale and arts and crafts were among the options on the menu.

It was a good day to be a kid.

“It’s a grueling process putting this thing together, but it’s also a lot of fun,” said Rubina Nitta, who chaired the circus with Michele Gioffre and Kristen Sussman.

Nitta said the Lewisboro Circus is the parents’ way of giving back to the school.

“It’s a huge event. It’s amazing how the community and families come together,” she said. “I think everyone has an awesome time doing it.”

The day’s turnout was big enough to fill the school’s parking lot, as cars began to form a large parking line on a nearby street parallel to the school. While the final figures were not available, Nitta expected the circus to raise somewhere between $7,000 and $8,000.

But you can’t put a price on having fun.

“The football toss is by far my favorite,” said Lewisboro Elementary School student Lucas Celetti. “But it’s all amazing.”

Stephanie Rodgers, who was running the arts and crafts stations, was happy with the amount of participation.

“It’s been a tremendous turnout,” she said. “The kids are having a blast.”
