Later in the month, Pre-K boys and girls will enjoy our annual on-site field trip by Legacy Farms, called "The Pumpkin Patch." - -with autumn stories from the farm, an authentic country corn crib for a playful outdoor math experience with measuring, pouring, and filling activities, Fall games, and selection of pumpkins for each child to take home. During Bikes, Blues, and BBQ, in late September, we will learn about the color...."orange," and our educational partner, Harley-Davidson, donates $2,000 to our Pre-Kindergarten Center to help with the purchase of new trikes for Pre-K during daily outdoor exploration activities.
As colorful Fall leaves begin floating to the ground in October, our young students will receive free on-site dental health checks, sponsored by our educational partners from Rogers Altrusa Organization, and the following week we will learn about the October migration of beautiful monarch butterflies, heading South for the Winter.... with help from our educational partner....The Rogers Garden Club. - - We are planning to host an annual visit from a BIG-RIG from J.
