Hey Falcons! This week’s article is about the upcoming Pumpkin Decorating Contest taking place in the Learning Commons! To participate, you have to decorate a pumpkin (it can be any size or color) like your favorite book character! If you’re creative, or even just want to have quality fun, you should enter your very own pumpkin in hopes of winning the contest. If you’re in 3rd-8th grade, submit your pumpkin to Ms. Natalie in the Learning Commons, and if you’re in K-2nd grade, submit it to Ms. Malissa in the Primary Learning Center. Have fun and remember to follow the rules! Here are the guidelines you must follow:


  1. Pumpkins should represent a favorite book character.  Think of your all-time favorite book and the character you love!
  2. Start with a pumpkin of any shape or size
  3. To decorate you can use paper, glue, markers, pipe cleaners, fabric, or any other craft items glued onto your pumpkin. You may paint the pumpkin as well. Spray paint or permanent paint works best!
  4. Absolutely no carved pumpkins. Or no holes!
  5. Turn in with your pumpkin and index card that has the book character, the title of the book and author of the book written on the front side and your name, your teacher’s name and grade level on the back. See Ms. Natalie or Miss Malissa if you need an index card.
  6. Do not put your name anywhere on the pumpkin.
  7. Try to think of unique characters! Let your creativity soar!
  8. Only one pumpkin per student may be entered.
  9. You may receive help from family members.

Good Luck Falcons! Stay tuned to see what other fun events are coming up!
