American Holiday Activity ~ Carving Jack-o-lanterns; a Slimey Hit with Students!

Mrs. Westbrook's and Mrs. Ellison's second grade classes enjoyed a sunny afternoon last week and transformed pumpkins into jack-o-lanterns. Students participated in the activity by helping remove the insides. Many of the students at Austinville's 59% Hispanic populated school have never had the opportunity to carve a jack-o-lantern. To finish off the activity, teachers roasted the seeds and let students have a taste!

These students ended the first nine weeks with a special treat from a local business. Each of them are eligible for a FREE haircut from Estetica ALVI! Former Austinville student, Vicky Tabarez, now a local businesswoman knows the importance of an education. Wanting to give back to her teachers and a new generation of Austinville students, Vicky has offered a reward of a free haircut for all Austinville students with A Honor Roll. Austinville teachers are proud of Vicky's leadership and business skills and her generosity.
