All PK8 students are encouraged to participate in this year’s Pumpkin Poetry contest.

To enter, you must first write a poem that has something to do with pumpkins and/or Halloween. The format and type of poem is up to you. What the poem is written on is also up to you. It could be paper, card stock, cardboard, or whatever. Then, along with your poem, you must bring in a carved pumpkin on either Wednesday or Thursday, October 26th or 27th. We will place them in the commons, for students to walk by and view during lunch.

Judging of the poetry and the carved pumpkins will be done by your student council on Friday morning, October 28th. Winners will be announced at the start of school that day. Creativity of both elements is important, but the priority is the poetry.

We’re hoping to have enough entries to have a winner in kindergarten through 2nd grade, a winner in 3rd through 5th grade, and a middle school winner. If we don’t have enough entries, we may need to combine groups.

Winners of each group will receive a special Halloween treat. If we have enough entries, we will also reward one or two runner ups per group.

All pumpkins should be brought home on Friday the 28th, so that they are at your house for Halloween.
