Harvest Festival

Fri Sept 29th, 8:45 – 11:45am

We will be celebrating the culmination of our garden and the beginning of our school year.
It begins with an assembly at 8:45 with music and sharing about all the work students have done in the garden and in the classroom to prepare for the day.
After the assembly, students are free to participate in any and all of our Harvest Festival activities. There is hay jumping, arts, music, games, and more.

The Harvest Festival meal is the star of our show! Classes have been harvesting and cooking delicious dishes to feed our community. We will begin serving at 10:30. Kids eat with their families. Activities continue until 11:45.

Children return to the classrooms at 11:45 for the remainder of the day. If your child is leaving early, you must sign them out in the office.

Families with kindergarten students are encouraged to attend. If you are the parent of a new student, and are not able to be at the Harvest Festival, please connect with your child’s teacher to let them know. The teacher can buddy them up with a student who will have a parent with them at the event, or for our older students, a friend who can help them navigate all the activity.
