October: Fall Harvestfest

Each October, we celebrate the beautiful Harvestfest season with our students and families. Activities move children out-of-doors throughout the week and offer students opportunity to learn and explore all that the season has to offer, as well as provide educational enrichment, physical fitness and sensory development activities. The week concludes with our traditional Harvestfest Assembly.

Businesses are approached for their support through sponsorships of $100 or $250. These sponsorships assist in providing the additional supplies and materials needed for Harvestfest week, as well as fund the needs of our one-of-a-kind outdoor educational classroom environment.
