The school’s Harvest Fest featured many community members as they shared their family traditions with students.
short term, the warehouse will be used to store furniture and equipment purchased for the three new intermediate schools.
Construction at Spring Branch Middle School continues on schedule. Pouring the concrete foundation began the week of Nov. 22.
Rahe Primary School students learned first-hand about family traditions during the school’s Harvest Fest celebration.
"We wanted to show students what Cam dies in the past did to prepare for the winter months,” Betty Valdez, Rahe Primary kindergarten teacher, said.
Community volunteers, including parents, brought to the school a wide range of traditional crafts, all adding to the Harvest Fest bounty of success.
“There were those making peanut
butler, food from pumpkins, jams and jellies, soap, syrup from the prickly pear cactus, wood carvers, mg makers and qudters, bee keepers, canners, and many more,” Valdez said.
The young students learned a lot, and more than just about past traditions of homesteaders, according to Valdez.
“Students can learn how we use the five senses, as well as vocabulary and language skills,” she said.
‘They also learned math skills, including fractions and units of food
measurement, like tablespoons and cups,” she added.
Volunteers included Cindy Parr, Andela Cowart, Barbara Martens, Linda Chang, Pam Vaught, Grey Canfield, Grace Canfield, Randy Watson, Vivian Knight, Helen Zipp, Donna Wofford, Debbie Almaguer, Tina Walton, Michelle Sullivan, Andrea Salter, Dr. and Mrs. Molnar, Melanie Brandt, Lisa Anderson, Leticia Daneshmand, Larry Mueller, Betsey Shows, and Robin Herndon.
