Throughout  Valley Stream UFSD Thirteen, all schools recently participated in a series of fall-themed activities, including a pumpkin patch event, coordinated by each respective school’s PTA. The events were held outdoors, allowing the students to enjoy the crisp fall weather while experiencing fun and engaging activities.

“Thank you to our PTAs for their exceptional efforts in hosting another successful round of pumpkin patches,” said Dr. Judith LaRocca, Superintendent of Valley Stream UFSD Thirteen. “Our students look forward to this event every year and it’s amazing to see our school community come together and have a great time!”

The pumpkin patch event was a highlight of the fall activities, with students having the opportunity to pick their own pumpkins. The activity also included learning about the growth process of pumpkins and other seasonal fruits.
