Each fall first graders and their senior buddies visit a pumpkin patch! The children go off to the pumpkin patch on a Catlin Gabel School bus. We begin our day with a short teaching session in the hayloft, followed by...THE PUMPKIN CANNONS!!!  Then kids then are free to explore the hay pyramid, pedal tractors, petting zoo and the hay maze.  We ride the tractor-pulled hay wagons out to the pumpkin patch where kids chose their very own pumpkins.  We then devour our delicious lunches packed by first grade families.  Upon returning to Catlin Gabel, we head off to the Fir Grove where first graders and seniors carve pumpkins into creative, unique characters that will never be forgotten...just like our senior buddies!  More photos are posted in All School photo gallery.
