Children's Craft: Pencil Box (11:00–3:00) 

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 also be available to purchase!
