Harvest Festival Fun at May School
During the afternoon of October 31st, the students, teachers, and staff at May School participated in our annual Harvest Festival. Each year, students take part in wonderful activities to celebrate the autumn season. Everyone had bushels of fun as they circulated around to various stations. Students made crafts, created jack-o’-lanterns, and catapulted pumpkins. Students even made their way through mazes and our harvest relays. Pigs races and pies in Mr. Stewart’s face ended the afternoon! May School would like to thank all of the parent volunteers who helped to make our Harvest Festival another success!
