Back to School     

Saturday, September 10 | 10:00–4:00 p.m.

During this interactive program, school-age youngsters (5 & up) will attend our one-room school to "learn their ABCs" as the Pleasant Valley children once did. The unique history lesson includes doing before- and after-school farm chores, playing games during recess, and learning arithmetic, English, and social studies under the tutelage of our schoolmarm. Classes are at 11:00, 1:00 & 2:30. At 11:30, visitors will have an opportunity to meet Larry Kidder, author of an award-winning book about the school itself. Games and recess will be at 12:00, 1:30 and 3:00. Box lunches will be available to purchase for lunch!

**Please note that all 2022 Saturday programs will be modified to encourage social distancing and reflect current State guidelines for public events. Visitors are asked to carry masks at all times, and wear them when social distancing isn't possible. Thank you for your understanding, and we hope to see you soon!
