Pumpkin Patch at Pythagoras Academy
This year at Pythagoras Academy, instead of visiting the pumpkin patch, we brought the pumpkin patch to the school on October 22nd! Our first annual PA Pumpkin Patch was a great success as every class had the opportunity to visit with their cohort and choose the perfect pumpkin. Students and staff were encouraged to dress up as farmers for the day and the sunny weather, the crisp fall air and the smiles of the children made it an occasion to remember. Students were excited to take their pumpkins home with them to prepare for Halloween, while teachers all chose a pumpkin to use for inquiry-led explorations during the week leading up to Halloween. Classes will be engaged in math activities, they will examine pumpkin attributes and life-cycles and participate in art-inspired pumpkin decoration and carving activities. This fun event brought together the whole school to build our sense of community and to create a new tradition.
