🎃 The Perfect Pumpkin 🎃
I searched for the perfect pumpkin,
And hunted high and low
I thought this might be just too hard,
And I didn't know where to go.
I had to show it off to my friends this Halloween
It had to be round and bright, and the best anyone has seen.
Then I saw a pumpkin sitting in the patch
It sat there all alone and had a great big scratch
Maybe the perfect pumpkin has been out there all this time
Perhaps, just like each of us, their differences make them shine.
There was something special about this pumpkin for this was clear to see.
Every pumpkin has its unique look, and this was perfect to me!
Enjoy the beautiful fall weather this weekend!

Global Handwashing Day
Global Handwashing Day took place this week. Students were taught about the importance of washing their hands thoroughly. Handwashing is the #1 way to prevent the spread of germs and illness. It is an important habit for all children to develop to keep their bodies healthy, especially during cold and flu season. Please remind your child to wash their hands at home as well.
