Pumpkin Decoration Contest

We start the fall season with a Halloween Pumpkin Decorating Contest on Wednesday, Oct. 30, hosted by Saula Valente. Pumpkins of every shape and size will be available for sale at school starting Tuesday, Oct. 15. Pumpkin purchases will automatically register students into the contest.
Decorate pumpkins at home and bring back to school by the contest date. A judging committee will decide on the winners for each grade level.
Proceeds from the Pumpkin Contest will fund gardening supplies to supplement outdoor classrooms and beautify our campus.
