Picking Pumpkins With PK and Kindergarten

Decked out in their rain boots in case it was muddy, the kindergartners took a hayride across campus to Roots Farm on Friday, October 7. The excursion was an opportunity for them to pick the pumpkins they planted in June. After each child plucked two perfect pumpkins from the patch—one to take home and one to turn into pie—they ventured into the corn maze where they got “lost” among the stalks, which are twice their size. See the fun here.

The following Friday, the prekindergartners boarded the haywagons for their trip to Roots. After picking pumpkins, flowers, and corn, they hiked around the outside of the farm where they made lots of exciting discoveries.
