The Circus Comes to Carver With ‘Greatest Show’

Carver Elementary School kicked off its biggest fundraiser of the year with a fun gathering at the school’s car line. This year’s parent party, “The Greatest Show: A Million Dreams Gala,” features a vintage circus theme and will be held March 2 at the Sheraton San Gabriel. At the kickoff, students wore costumes and flew acrobatic ribbons to celebrate the start of the fundraising festivities. In addition to drawings and fixed-bid parties, there will be a special live performance from Le Petit Cirque for the patron families. The entire community is encouraged to be a part of “The Greatest Show” by donating items for the live and silent auctions or becoming sponsors of the event. Interested businesses should contact the parent party ringmasters Cathy Newton, Christine Hyun Song and Jennifer Park at In addition, organizers recently released a fun promotional video on Vimeo featuring the entire school performing “This Is Me” from “The Greatest Showman.” See the results of all the hard work dedicated to this year’s epic video, including a special performance by Principal Michael Lin, by visiting
