The district's youngest students at Harley Avenue Primary School and
James H. Boyd Intermediate School celebrated the holiday season by
participating in a myriad of traditional school-wide festivities on
Friday, Oct. 31.
The day’s activities began at Boyd, where community members
gathered to watch students’ parade outside in their Halloween costumes.
Led by the Boyd student band, parents and friends waved as students,
faculty and staff members made their way around the assembled circle of
Students at Harley Avenue also demonstrated their holiday
spirit with a costume parade followed by a morning of fun fall
activities at the Harley Harvest Festival, sponsored by the school's
PTA. Along with several other educational activities, Harley students
tried their hand at stuffing a scarecrow, a beanbag toss, fishing for
apples, bowling with candy corn pins and a hula-hoop ring toss.
At the end of the festival, students brought home personally decorated
pumpkins they selected from the Harley pumpkin patch and other crafts
they made during the day.
