We had such perfect weather and our day at the pumpkin patch was full of adventure and laughter. We got to learn about how pumpkins grow and we did a hay maze, a tractor ride, pet and fed animals, saw pig and duck races and played on giant slides. Everyone had a great time and we each left with a pumpkin we got to pick ourselves from the patch.
Thank you to French Prairie Gardens for a great field trip.

We had our Open House this past week and it was so great to see all of our students showing their parents what we’ve been up to at school. We love seeing students take pride in their work and they certainly have so much to be proud of! Students showed off writing folders, cubbies, self portraits, alpha friends, favorite activities, and got to introduce their parents to all their new friends! Thank you to everyone who came out.

Our M/W/F class completed an art project this week based on the story Elmer by David McKee. Students got to paint their own Elmer elephants and did a wonderful job with the watercolor. At the end we did an art walk where the students got to enjoy looking at each other’s art!
