Homecroft Kindergarten Academy teacher, Susan D. Thomas, is an October 2022 Helping Hand Grant recipient. Her project was to create a pumpkin patch! “Many of our students do not have that opportunity. On October 28th we would like to set up pumpkin patches for our students as we celebrate Pumpkin Day…” “Students will go to their classroom pumpkin patch to “pick” a pumpkin. During the day students will learn about the life cycle of a pumpkin, write about their pumpkin, learn pumpkin vocabulary, measure and weigh their pumpkin, and much more! At the end of the day, students will take their pumpkin home!”
Thanks to Dr. Thomas Little, Superintendent for Perry Township Schools, for featuring our grants program in his column in The Southsider Voice. Dr. Little highlighted two of our grantees, Shelley Doris and Erin Arishiro.
