Pumpkin-Patch-News

On Friday, October 29th, our grounds will be
“magically” transformed into a farmer’s dream…. fields full of healthy, orange pumpkins that don’t require any weeding or watering! In order to build school spirit and to celebrate the season, all of the students at Ecole Marlborough will get an opportunity to search for the perfect autumn pumpkin companion with their Buddy classes.

We are asking each student to pay $2.00 for a pumpkin in our pumpkin patch. On October 29th, students are asked to bring a cloth bag with handles labeled with your child’s name to carry their pumpkin from the school to home (Plastic grocery bags may not be strong enough). Although we can plan a fun, meaningful activity outside, we cannot pick the perfect weather for it. Please have your child dress appropriately on this day for some extended time outside (i.e.: rubber boots, raincoat with a hood).

On Monday November 1, we encourage students to bring back their carved pumpkin so it can be displayed in our first ever pumpkin parade! All pumpkins that are brought back will be composted at the end of the day. We are looking forward to a rewarding harvest celebration!
