Story Book Pumpkin Flyer

Story Book Pumpkin Flyer will be in your mailbox on Monday, please send it home Monday or Tuesday. Any student can enter a Story Book Pumpkin, and so can a teacher, or even a class. Pumpkins are due Monday Oct 24th, and will be displayed on tables, similar to the book fair so every can see them. The pumpkins will be taken down on Friday Oct 28th.


Grades K,1,2,3 will have orange flyers that are double sided. 4,5,6, will have white flyers that are two pages. (I made a mistake when coping, it was not intentional to have the different flyers)
