Hello CBA Families!

One of our biggest and most exciting events of the year is quickly approaching… The Parade of Pumpkins! Here is a little information on this highly anticipated event:

  • This is our 17th annual Parade of Pumpkins. The event was started by our Third Graders, and is a student led service project.
  • The event is a fundraiser for the organization, Bringing Hope Home. Bringing Hope Home (BHH) is a nonprofit organization that provides unexpected amazingness to local families with cancer through financial and emotional support. To learn more about this charitable organization, please visit
  • During the week of October 12th, we will be selling pumpkins at drop off and pick up. Pumpkins are $15. We are asking that each family carve a pumpkin and create a Jack-o-Lantern for our parade. Once you are done, please return your Jack-o-Lantern to school on Friday, October 15th. We will line the playground with a parade of spook-tacular jack-o-lanterns!
  • During the event, we will be selling soft pretzels, sweet and savory snacks, donuts, apple cider, and glow bracelets. All money collected will go toward Bringing Hope Home.
  • The event runs from 5:30pm to 8:30pm on Friday, October 15th!

Why is a jack-o-latern afraid?

It had no guts!

What did the pumpkin say to the carver?

Cut it out!

Why was the jack-o-latern so forgetful?

Because he was empty headed!

What do you call a group of pumpkin besties?
