We are growing a storybook pumpkin patch and we need your help! 


Students will decorate a pumpkin to look like one of their 

favorite book characters, and bring it to school to plant in our

Story Book Pumpkin Patch!

Please, no carved or Cut Pumpkins!

The following directions were distributed to students this week:

  • Think of your favorite book and design your pumpkin based on your favorite character from that book.
  • Take home pumpkin by October 10. PTA purchased the pumpkins tax free so please send at least $1.00 per pumpkin to offset the cost.
  • Gather your decorating supplies. Acrylic paints or permanent markers work best. watercolors tend to run, and spray paint will gradually dissolve the pumpkin. You can add materials, like yarn, buttons. wiggly eyes, etc.
  • Every decorated pumpkin must have the completed form describing the pumpkin and story

Bring you pumpkin and the completed form to school by

October 15-18

Everyone will take their decorated pumpkin home by  October 31.  If your child needs help getting it home, please make plans to do this. Participation is completely voluntary.

This is not a contest. Please consider donating $1.00 per pumpkin to offset the cost of the pumpkins.

Have fun and be creative!
