Pumpkin Day and Other Fun
Mrs. Warmouth’s kindergarten celebrated the new season with their annual Pumpkin Day! For Pumpkin Day, the students wore orange T-shirts and ate only orange food. They also participated in races and played games and helped to carve a pumpkin, getting their hands dirty as they cleaned out the inside and took out the seeds. The highlight of the day was the special pumpkin hunt where each student hunted for a pumpkin to take home. In Mrs. Ballew’s 3rd grade, the students are working hard at everything from geography to history to literature. They are reading Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White as well as working on projects about Ancient Egypt. The 3rd graders also have been learning the countries of Africa and the Middle East, an impressive task for anyone to accomplish. In Mrs. Carpenter’s 5th grade history class, the students are learning about Medieval Europe. They have constructed models of medieval castles, and soon they will build catapults to shoot marshmallows for “castle wars.” Throughout the grades at Trinity and even at a young age, students are both learning and applying what they know.
