It was a brisk autumn day.  But it wasn’t just any autumn day – it was Halloween.  Charlie Brown was busy raking leaves while Snoopy was busy playing in them…

The Halloween season is not complete at Saint Patrick School until the Principal reads the story It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown to the pre-k and the kindergarten classes.  This annual tradition is then followed by a trip to the “pumpkin patch” that the Mother’s Club creates on the front lawn of the school.  The pre-k and kindergartenimg_4113 students were led to the pumpkin patch by Mr. Fontana to see if the Great Pumpkin had left them anything special.  Each one of the students picked out a pumpkin that they were able to bring home.  The pre-k was especially excited to see that their 5th grade buddies were waiting for them in the pumpkin patch to help them pick out their pumpkin.

The pumpkins came in all different shapes, sizes and colors.   Because of that, they were used in the classroom as an example of how we come in all different shapes, sizes and colors.  This is what helps make us special and the students were able to talk about why we should celebrate those differences.

A great big thank you to Parlee Farms who generously donated all the pumpkins this year!
