Pumpkins Come to Spanish Oaks

Submitted by sherri.peterson on Wed, 10/22/2014 - 11:20

We want to extend a huge "thank you" to Harward Farms for their generous donation of a pumpkin for each student here at our school!  They made the day a happy one for 601 children!  The energy level was buzzing as the truck pulled up, loaded with bright, orange pumpkins!  We look forward to using these pumpkins in a variety of learning activities before they head home with their new owners!

Thanks again, Harward Farms!
