Students in the Hamilton School District’s 4-year-old kindergarten program will celebrate fall as they participate in hands-on experiences with nature Oct. 19 at Harvest Fest.
School staff members and families are working together to plan this event that will culminate the students’ study of the changing seasons. The event is sponsored by Willow Springs Learning Center and the Willow Springs 4K Parent Group. Many local businesses and families provided generous donations to make the event successful.
The students will experience fall at stations including:
- hay riding;
- gourd, pinecone and acorn collecting;
- corn bowling;
- participating in a pumpkin relay;
- creating a harvest vest to wear in the all-school parade;
- pinning a patch on the scarecrow;
- learning about animals in the fall; and
- enjoying an apple snack.
The activities will begin at 9 a.m. for the morning kindergarten session and at 1 p.m. for the afternoon session.
The 4-year-old kindergarten program is housed at Willow Springs Learning Center, W220 N6660 Town Line Road, Menomonee Falls.
