On October 26th, representatives with the Harward family and Harward Farms came to Maple Ridge to give each student a pumpkin. Teachers were able to use these pumpkins to teach about agriculture, or to reinforce/teach other concepts with math and reading (i.e. find the average weight, circumference, number of seeds). Maple Ridge faculty and students would like to thank the Harward family for their generous donation to our school.
