St. Anne E.L.K.P. Students Work On Getting "Stuffed" For Fall Celebrations

Danika Gray, Damara Moxam and Landon Houle, English and French Early Learning Kindergarten Students at St. Anne School in Hanmer, enjoy one of the fall scarecrows they have created with their classes.

October 13, 2011 - The month of October can be an exciting one for little people. The English and French Early Learning Kindergarten Students at St. Anne School in Hanmer are no exception. Along with their regular classroom activities during the month of October, they celebrated Thanksgiving and will also be celebrating Hallowe'en. Finding a mascot to help tie the two celebrations together wasn't very hard. Who better than the scarecrow? The farm fields are full of scarecrows in the fall as the farmers prepare to gather in their crops and those same scarecrows watch over the most important Hallowe'en crop of all. Pumpkins!

With the help and guidance of their teachers, the youngest students at the Sudbury Catholic School in Hanmer took advantage of the nice weather and headed outside to build their own fall scarecrows. Armed with a wooden base for the body, a bale of hay, and all the usual clothing one would expect to find on a scarecrow, the students took turns not only talking about the order and appearance of their individual classroom scarecrows, but also took turns grabbing handfuls of the hay and stuffing their scarecrow bodies. In the end, three different classrooms had created three different looking scarecrows. The scarecrows will sit in the flower beds in front of St. Anne School for the entire month of October watching over the school's own gardens and helping to put students and staff from all grades into a season of celebrating. Never let it be said that the English and French E.L.K.P. students at St. Anne School aren't "stuffed" with ideas about having fun!
