Celebrate Fall with Burgess-Peterson Academy

By Jeanne Fore
Fall is in the air and it is time for the Burgess-Peterson Academy Fall Festival. On Friday October 28, the entire school family (students, parents, and friends) will come together to celebrate the harvest season. Children and teachers are creating exquisite scarecrows to display throughout the school as decorations for the festivities. The students have chosen a variety of carnival games to play at the festival. In addition, there will be a juried student art show, costume contest, arts and crafts, a nail and beauty salon and face painting.
The children can also participate in craft activities, such as making masks, paper pumpkins, and spin art. Children are encouraged to come to school dressed as a favorite book character for the costume contest. Prizes will be awarded in several categories.
Concessions will be available for purchase at the festival and discount combo packages are available for presale to the students. We also will have some special guests to surprise our kids.
The Fall Festival is the biggest fundraiser for the Burgess-Peterson PTA for the year. Money earned will be reinvested in our students and school. Admission is free. Concession and game tickets are sold in 25-cent increments.
Located in the Southeast corridor of the East Atlanta community, Burgess-Peterson Academy currently serves approximately 300 students in grades pre-kindergarten through fifth grades. The school’s goal is to ensure that we provide students with hands-on and inquiry based teaching which will allow them an opportunity to continue to think critically and analytically for real-world application. Over 80% of the faculty/staff hold advanced degrees in the field of education and believe in life long learning and thinking analytically for real-world application.
