Attendance was high on Saturday for the Valley Home PTC sponsored Harvest Festival. There was lots to see and do for the attending crowd. It was wonderful to see so many smiles on our children's faces as they played football toss, bobbed for donuts, raced tricycles, got their faces painted, tried their hand at dropping clothespins into a milk bottle, a lollipop pull and the excitement of being a lucky winner in the cake walk and more! The Cogburn family left many visitors with chills and thrills after visiting their spooky haunted house!

Knights Ferry School held their annual Jog-a-Thon last Friday. Fifth through eighth graders ran first, then the Kindergarteners and grades one through four ran. Many parents ran along with their students. Wyatt Sousa enjoyed running the laps. Madison Willis liked reaching her goal for the run.
