Headed down to the pumpkin patch

Cherry Grade School students got an early taste of Halloween on Tuesday, when the entire student body was allowed to choose their own pumpkin at a local pumpkin patch, sponsored by John the Barber Foundation and established by Jack Rooney. Students walked from the school to the pumpkin patch, where all the students — kindergarten through eighth grade — chose a pumpkin, and then headed back to the school to enjoy apple cider and apple doughnuts. Later in the month, the Cherry Student Council is sponsoring a pumpkin decorating contest, and the students are encouraged to decorate their pumpkins and bring them back to school.
