BRIARCLIFF MANOR, N.Y. – Todd Elementary kindergarten students celebrated the fall season in the last week of October with a series of activities, including pumpkin painting and making scarecrows.
“Fall Festival culminates with a performance,” said kindergarten teacher Jeanne Smith. “Each kindergarten class sings an individual song that their costume is related to. Then, the grade sings two more autumn songs, one of which includes sign language.”
The week of fall activities included the second Big Apple Crunch, sponsored by the PTA. While rain prevented the event from taking place outside, faculty members noted the “crunch” was heard loud and clear inside the gymnasium.
“The kids really enjoyed crunching the apples together,” said Todd PTA Co-chair Betty Ng-Beckler.
