Fall Festival, Pumpkins, and Scarecrows!

THANK YOU to all who were able to join us for Saturday's Fall Festival.   It was a wonderful day and it was so enjoyable to be in each other's company while watching our students have such a great time.  A big Thank You to our Parent Association Chair, Tachou, for taking the lead on this event.   Thank you also to our team of volunteers who filled many roles from setting up, to helping Paul at the grill, to baking treats, selling at the bake sale, running carnival games, chaperoning the Petting Farm, helping with scarecrows and pie throws, decorating, making popcorn, giving hay rides, cleaning up, and MUCH, MUCH more.  Thank you also to Katie and the talented and brave performers who took the stage! And, speaking of brave, thank you to those who allowed us to raise money by taking a turn in the Pie Throw! The day had many highlights...certainly including Pete's hayrides, McDonny's Traveling Farm, and the Fun Run. The event had many moving pieces and we are so fortunate to have such a wonderful community to chip in.  
     Thank you to the Crandall family for loaning us their Bouncy House!   
If you/your child entered a pumpkin in the pumpkin contest, please reach out to Nichole at nschrafft@harborlight.net so that we can get you a ribbon and certificate.   Congratulations to Jonas C. for creating the winning pumpkin and to Parker N. for earning second place.   Our other 7 entries all tallied very close votes!  Most importantly, it was so fun to see the original entries and admire the students' creativity!
Our scarecrows look so fun lined up along the fence on the field.  When the rain goes away we'll move them to a more visible location.   Again, if you made a scarecrow, please reach out to Nichole so that we can get your child a ribbon and certificate!   
One other note..... we found a pair of sunglasses.  If they are yours, please reach out.
Please also look below in the PHOTO section of this page to see many photos of the event.  We will upload Gail's photos later as well.
Thank you all again!
