Warwick County Park Harvest Festival

Upattinas School, in the form of staff members, students, alumni, friends, and parents, volunteered at the super-fun Harvest Festival at Warwick County Park. We meet lots of families and entertained visiting children with fun games and a puzzle booklet to take home.
Our Bean Bag Toss, complete with spider rings for prizes, was a hit with all the children, no matter their age. They were in love with the bean bags that were sewn together by our middle school students, and decorated by the lower school.
How many pieces of candy corn were in the jar? Guesses ranged from 4 to over 1000, but the winner guessed 260, just two away from the count of 258! She was thrilled - and so was Mom, who was reported to be a big fan of candy corn!
Our volunteers (shown here, a mom, a friend, and an alumna) were visible in their bright green Upattinas t-shirts as they helped children paint pumpkins and served food with the Friends of Warwick Park.
Speaking of friends, here are a few new ones - Friends of Warwick Park - who served fall refreshments throughout the day.Finally, this guy - - now you see him.... you don't!

The Art Room

One of our high school students found herself alone in the art room, a rare occurrence. We love the picture.
