Knapp’s Kindergarten classes went to Kingsway Pumpkin Patch in Hartville and had a BLAST! All of the kindergarten students went on a wagon ride to a field where they got to pick their own pumpkin and two gourds. They also enjoyed a puppet show that detailed the life cycle of a plant. What a fun day! Thank you to Miss Self for allowing us to go and have this great experience! Thank you, also, to all of our parents who attended either as a chaperon or met us there! We’re thankful you volunteered your time. CLICK HERE TO VIEW A SLIDESHOW!
