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. This year, Harvestfest will be held the week of October 14th – 18th.  The week includes our traditional Harvestfest Assembly which will be held Thursday, October 17th at 10am.

Businesses are asked for their support through small sponsorships that 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.


Fall Havestfest 2019 will be held the week of October 14th-18th with Assembly on October 17th.
