In conjunction with our Fall Festival we had a Literacy Pumpkin Decorating Contest to promote reading. The pumpkins had to be decorated to represent a character from a book and the book had to accompany the pumpkin as part of the entry. Any student, family, class, or teacher could decorate a pumpkin and enter it in the contest. Winners of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place were chosen.
Below are photos of the pumpkins decorated by a few of our teachers to kick off our event.
The Tin Man from "The Wizard of Oz" The Chicken from "Chicken Little"
The Cat from "The Cat in the Hat" The Pig from "The Three Little Pigs"
