Halloween Pumpkins in Library

Submitted by sarah.sumsion on

Miss Patti hosted her annual pumpkin decorating display in library. Students selected a book and painted or created a design to represent a character, scene or theme from the book. These are always AMAZING and everyone loves seeing how creative they are! Thank you students and Miss Patti for encouraging a love of books!
