Oakwood’s Pumpkin Patch Was a Ton of Fun

The Oakwood Primary Center's annual pumpkin hunt was another resounding success. With the sun barely up, the Oakwood staff did the hard work of bringing the pumpkin patch to the students as they strategically placed over 700 pumpkins across Oakwood’s vast back-field.  Once carefully placed, each of the native North American squashes patiently waited for their perfect match to show up. With big smiles on their faces, students from kindergarten through 2nd grade, enjoyed picking their own pumpkins.

Some pumpkins went home to decorate homes while others remained in school for special projects. Teachers integrated math lessons with pumpkin weight and measurement, others used the seeds for counting by ones and ten. Any way you slice it… Oakwood’s Pumpkin Patch is a ton of fun. 

As you can see from the photos, staff, students, and pumpkins all had a wonderful morning.
