Thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate at the Second Annual Great Pumpkin Festival last Saturday. It was a lot of fun, with a super lineup of local bands, delicious food, games, garden tours and a haunted house.

Dozens of parents came out to volunteer their help, and a big thanks goes out to teachers Mr. Moreno, Mr. Hummer, Mr. Carrillo, Ms. Williams and Community Rep Peter Valverde who came in to volunteer on their day off to make the day a great success.
