The Fall Harvest is a special presentation by the children at Granada Day School that occurs annually. We prepare the children through musical practice and they put on a beautiful show as an act of worship to God, which parents, friends, and family members can come and enjoy. We are proud to be a school that takes part in the arts as this is an excellent tool to develop creativity and wonder for the little ones. We are very thankful for the parents who choose to volunteer and help create the stage and backdrop for the show.
