MSA Pre-K Visits the Boone Hall Pumpkin Patch

Story by cnmAdmin2030 / October 31, 2019

The Pre-K students of Meeting Street Academy had the perfect October morning for their annual trip to the Boone Hall Pumpkin Patch last Thursday, October 24. Students began their visit with a hayride through the forest where they were met with different spooky scenes including “snakes” slithering up the trees and “bats” threatening to touch their heads. Luckily, there were only yelps of excitement from the brave bunch.

After their exciting ride, students visited the petting zoo and had the opportunity to feed the llamas, goats, and other animals before heading to the bounce mat, which proved to be an instant hit. Many bounced the morning away, while other students found it to be the perfect opportunity for endless slides at the playground.

The last stop for students was the pumpkin patch where everyone was able to pick a pumpkin to take home. It was apparent that these students took the song, “Five Little Pumpkins”, literally as they picked their way through the patch. Most opted for a little, easy to carry without the help of their chaperone, pumpkin. Regardless of their choice, students were excited to pose for pictures with their orange treasure before heading to the bus.

It was a magical morning and we thank the Boone Hall Pumpkin Patch for hosting our MSA Owls and allowing them to create new memories to cherish!

“MSA is a family. Once you’re in, you’re in. They said they would follow our kids from K-3 to college and they actually lived up to what they said they would do. Not only did MSA challenge my daughter academically but it also exposed her to new things that she probably wouldn’t have been exposed to at our previous neighborhood school. Our journey at MSA was exciting and rewarding. They actually walk the walk.”
