Pre-K had a lesson on shapes today so we used what they learned to make our class pumpkins/Jack-o-lanterns. Most of the kids thoroughly enjoyed cleaning the pumpkins out and seeing the outcome of their Jack-o-lanterns!! #vanfarelementary #wearefamily #prek #pumpkincarving

There has been some concern with the traffic and flow of the elementary pickup line after school. While we are working on identifying possible solutions to the congestion on the gravel road, I need you to be aware of traffic, travel cautiously, and be aware of all surroundings. Our top priority is the safety of our students and families. Mr. Hummel
