Bringing the Pumpkin Patch to School


Wed, 10/28/2020 - 00:05

Courtenay Elementary and the Courtenay Elementary Community School Society would like to extend our sincerest thanks for the generosity of Sieffert's Farm Market. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has squashed many school field trips to local pumpkin patches this year, but Sieffert's Farm Market has made a generous donation of a truckload of pumpkins to Courtenay Elementary, bringing the pumpkin patch to the school.

The kindergarten and Gr. 1 classes have something planned in the garden this week, so you just might have a chance to see the school garden full of pumpkins!
