WOW Workshop Magic Show: UPDATES!
On Friday, December 11th, Arroyo Vista students will attend an assembly hosted by “School of Astonishment.” It will be a 30-minute interactive magic show called the WOW Workshop. During the assembly, students will learn how to perform three cool magic tricks with few household items. For the tricks, students will need (1) an empty toilet paper roll (no paper), (2) a dollar bill and a coin, and (3) a deck of cards. If they don’t have these items, they can still watch and enjoy the show.
