The air is getting a little chilly, leaves are changing colours, and we’re gearing up for our annual Earl Haig School Council Pumpkin Patch! It’s our first fundraiser of the year and it’s going to be a good one.

Join us in the Kindergarten play yard on Thursday, October 26th, where you may buy a large pumpkin, snag some delicious baked goods for home (or to bring to work to take the cake as favourite coworker for the day!), and start your day off right with a FREE cup of hot coffee. The pumpkin patch opens at 7:30 am – be sure to come early so you don’t miss out (last year we sold out!).

Pumpkins are $7 each and may be left in the Kindergarten yard labelled with your name for you to transport home at the end of the day.

Interested in helping out? We are looking for bakers to donate a breakfast-friendly baked good (muffins, scones, loaves – no nuts, please!) on the morning of the sale or the day before to the office. We also need help unloading the pumpkins first thing in the morning and sales help during the event. To volunteer to unload pumpkins, or assist with sales please sign up here or email us at

See you there!
