First Annual Storybook Pumpkin Decorating Contest

The First Annual Storybook Pumpkin Decorating Contest was a huge success. We had 95 students enter the competition, which is one-third of our enrollment. Students were asked to decorate a pumpkin into their favorite storybook character. Their creativity and decorating ideas were amazing. Judging was done by employees of CCS Central Office. Look at the pictures below of some our pumpkins for our Storybook Pumpkin Patch. Each grade level had a winner and 4 runners-up. Winners will receive gift certificates to the book fair. Hopefully, this will become a tradition here at GLE!
