Pumpkin pickup

-A A +A

CKS offers many thanks to the Cedar Key United Methodist Church for once again making the Pumpkin Patch happen for the little Sharks!

Every year just before Halloween, volunteers at the church are waiting to help the elementary students select a pumpkin and complete an arts and crafts project.

Mrs. Shewey's first graders – shown in the photo – were among those who made the trek this year.

The students walk to the Pumpkin Patch from CKS and then lug their pumpkins back to school so they can take them home at the end of the day. (A lesson many students learn is that a pumpkin seems to gain weight based on how far it needs to be carried!)
