Lincoln School held its annual Pumpkin patch Oct. 11, where children picked pumpkins and were regaled with a story about a fictional square pumpkin.

Amid tall scarecrows and mums, the children came from their classrooms to a field transformed into a pumpkin haven.

"It was a beautiful way to kick off fall and set the school abuzz with festive fall spirits," organizers said. "Even after school, parents and caregivers were seen shopping for flowers, gourds, and cider donuts, all ready to enjoy fall's arrival as they headed into the weekend."

Parent volunteers regaled children with the tale of Spookley the Square Pumpkin, a kindhearted pumpkin who accepts every challenge placed before him. 

Children continued to the game area where they participated in an over-under hand-to-hand relay race with pumpkins, earning spooky stickers for their teamwork. And each child was sent into the "patch" to pick their very own sugar pumpkin!

Lincoln School wishes everyone a happy, safe fall season.
