Learning Grows with Hiawatha’s Great Pumpkin

Hiawatha Elementary School kindergarten students were greeted by a great surprise as they participated in a fall-themed activity focused on identifying unique properties of pumpkins.

The students recited a poem and sprinkled a field outside the school with special pumpkin glitter in hopes the Great Pumpkin from the infamous Charlie Brown story would bring pumpkins overnight. The next day students were pleasantly surprised when a pumpkin patch blanketed the field where they had spread the glitter the day before. 

Kindergarten students in Mrs. Cerullo’s class began conducting several experiments – including observations of their pumpkins, describing their unique characteristics and measuring the pumpkins’ height and width with cubes. Continuing their observations, students placed their pumpkins into tubs of water, discovering their buoyancy.  

Following the activity, students were given the opportunity to take home their pumpkins to continue the fall-themed fun.

Throughout the month of September, Sachem Central School District students and staff came together to organize a variety of fundraisers and activities to benefit the victims of devastating hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

Among the various items collected were personal hygiene supplies, nonperishable food items and a harvest of crops grown in Wenonah’s community garden, as well as gift cards and other monetary donations.

All items will be donated to one of three Texas schools the district has adopted or to local organization Island Harvest.
