It’s Autumn. Pumpkins abound. But you’ve never seen pumpkins like these.
The Beta Book Fair is in town, and even the produce is getting in on the fun. Scholars were invited to decorate pumpkins with a literary theme of their choice. The 45 entries sit on tables in the school hallway and compete for first place. The Beta scholars cast their votes for their favorite and the winners will receive prizes from the book fair.
Many factors can sway the voters. Some choose a particular theme because it reminds them of a movie they like. 2nd grader Melanie Marines chose the Fancy Nancy pumpkin for aesthetic reasons. She said it had lots of details.
Ballots are still being cast. The winner will be announced in morning assembly on December 5th.
