From the Desk of Ila England, Lower School Librarian
Our annual “Storybook Character Pumpkins on Parade” event is right around the corner. This is a fun family activity designed to encourage a love of reading and to promote the library.
Pumpkins on Parade! October 27-31
What: Decorate a pumpkin to look like a character from a Brook Hill Lower School library book! Pumpkins may be real or “fake” made out of plastic etc.
Who: Any student may participate. This is optional, not required!
Where: Brook Hill Lower School Library
When: Pumpkins must arrive October 23rd or 24th to be considered for judging. Pumpkins will be on display October 27-31. Students will vote for their favorite storybook pumpkin. Winners will be announced on Friday, October 31.
All entries will receive a prize.
How: Be creative! Use paint, cloth, stickers, adhesives or props to add details which will transform your pumpkin into a character. No carved pumpkins please. Parents may help but the idea should come from the student.
