School transformed into pumpkin patch for the day

Posted: Updated:
HELENA -

HELENA, Mont.- Bryant Elementary School transformed into a pumpkin patch this morning.

Every student got a chance to race toward their pick, making them feel like they were actually in a real field full of the Halloween staple.

Bank of the Rockies provided more than 250 pumpkins to ensure every child got to take one home. Angie Olson from the bank said the kids only had to follow two rules: to take only what they can carry and to have fun.

Bryant Elementary is a majority low-income school, which makes this a big treat for many of these kids.

"It's amazing cause all of the kids are just so excited and they are just so happy and some of them might not get a pumpkin so now they all get one," said Angie Olson, event coordinator and employee at Bank of the Rockies.

The community bank has been providing pumpkins to the school for five years and says they plan to do so for many years to come.

    Sandbag after sandbag was filled today by hundreds of volunteers. All hoping to fight back what the national weather service says could be one of the worst floods of the century. “We are expecting the crest could be as high as what we saw in 1953. Depending on the amount of water that does reach us it could be a little less. But even with less flow down the river, it could be as high as it was in 2011,” said Meteorologist Jason Anglin.

The idea is to keep the children active through the summer months. So, each kid puts on a pedometer at the beginning of the day to track their movements. Yesterday the group tackled nearly a fourth of their goal. They walked more than 200 miles in just one day. “It helps move everything as our...
