Fulton County Ag Fest

Each year the fourth graders go to the Fulton County Ag Fest. Community members from Fulton County volunteer their time to educate the county's fourth graders on agriculture. Students spend the day going to different sessions and participating in hands-on activities. They learn many things from life in the 1800s and farming history, to information about water, soil, and livestock. Teachers and students receive educational materials to be used in the classroom as well as an Ag Fest t-shirt.


Kindergarten Seasonal Field Trips to Secor Park 

For every season, the kindergarten class takes a field trip to Secor Park. While there, they take a walk and observe the changes that take place from season to season within nature. They visit a pond, creek, and meadow while walking along the nature paths. Students keep a journal to write down and draw pictures while they are there.


Preschool Field Trip to Gust Pumpkin Farm

Every fall, the 3 year old and 4 year old preschool classes take a field trip to Gust Pumpkin Farm. While there, the students get a tour of the farm and learn about many different animals, including chickens, goats, pigs, cows, rabbits, and more. The kids get a chance to feed the animals and pet them too! They also get a hayride around the farm. The trip ends with the preschoolers picking out their own pumpkin from the pumpkin patch. A few days before Halloween, the preschoolers have Dad's Night at school where the kids and their dads carve out their pumpkin, sing a song, and enjoy a little treat.
