Friday morning, light rail cars will be filled with 3- and 4-year-old children from St. John's Co-Operative Nursery School, their brothers, sisters, parents and teachers for a trip to see the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus at the Arena in downtown Baltimore.
The children are getting pretty excited about this ride, according to Jane Soverns, the school's director. They plan to wear their nursery school T-shirts and are busy making silly circus hats, just for fun.
Soverns said that the circus is sending a clown to meet the children as they board the train at Cromwell Station at 9:15 a.m. He will ride with them, escort them to the Arena and lead them to their seats.
Unfortunately, Snoopy, the school mascot, will not be able to attend the circus with them. Pets aren't allowed on the light rail. But he will come to see them off at the station.
* The nursery school, at 300 W. Maple Road, is having registration for the 1995-1996 school year at 1 p.m. Thursday. Classes are available for 3- and 4-year-olds.
