Students learn about rustic life at El Morro Harvest Festival

Students at El Morro Elementary School are participating in a two-day Harvest Festival. Kindergarten/TK, third and fourth graders enjoyed a variety of hands-on activities yesterday (Monday, Nov. 21) and today (Tuesday, Nov. 22), 1st, 2nd and 5th graders will each spend an hour learning about our country’s beginnings, Pilgrims and Native Americans and their rustic lifestyle of hunting, sewing, leatherwork and candle making.

Parents, family members and teachers are assisting with the activities as volunteers.
