On Wednesday, October 14th, all in-person Mitchell students received a pumpkin to bring home. Remote students will be sent details about pumpkin pickup in the coming days. These pumpkins were generously donated by the MES PTO for a Book Character Pumpkin Decorating Contest. The Garden kindly donated time and talent to deliver these pumpkins to our students.
Each student at Mitchell is invited to select one of their favorite book characters and draw, paint, dress, and decorate the pumpkin to look like the character. In the coming weeks, students will work with Mrs. Loiseau, school library media specialist, and Mrs. Gamache, art teacher, to plan their pumpkin designs. Please refrain from carving the pumpkins for this contest. We can’t wait to see the creations of our talented Mitchell Eagles! Details about how to submit your entries in the Book Character Pumpkin Decorating Content are forthcoming.
