Celebrating Johnny Appleseed’s birthday

Students in the second grade classes of Mrs. Cook and Ms. Oranday celebrated the birthday of Johnny Appleseed to introduce a unit on tall tales.

To get the students in the spirit, second-grade parents bought all kinds of apple goodies: raw apples,  dehydrated apples, apple pies, candied apples and McDonald’s apple pies, to name a few items.

Even though the actual birthday of John Chapman (that’s his real name) was Sept. 26, the Keystone teachers pushed back the day to accommodate parent conferences and a school holiday.

Besides, it’s always a good time to celebrate with some apples. For the kids, break out the sweet apple goodies. And for grownups, enjoy the apples that Johnny himself would have planted — in hard cider form.
