    We are still unable to take field trips at this time, our community is concerned about the Variant that is going around, so all field trips and classes will be done Virtual, it may not be the same as seeing things live, but that is how will do it till everything is ok in the future.

    Hi, all!  Our Junior Kindergarten students typically go apple picking in the fall.  How are you all navigating field trips this year? No field trips? Limited? Only outdoors? I will be meeting with fellow division heads tomorrow to ask what our schools approach is but also wanted to see what other schools are doing.

    I set up a Pumpkin Patch on the playground last year and we will do again this year as the children loved it!  I purchased pumpkins and a couple small hay bales and a few decorations.  I took the children in groups in a wagon to the area and they got out and picked a pumpkin to decorate and take home!  The farm gave us a good deal as I purchased quite a few pumpkins :)
